The Memorial

The remains of about 220 soldiers, scouts and civilians are buried around the base of this memorial.

The white marble headstones scattered over the battlefield denote where the slain troopers were found and originally buried. In 1881 they were reinterred in a single grave on this site.

The officers' remains were removed in 1877 to various cemeteries throughout the country. General Custer was buried at West Point.
