  1. According to personnel at the Custer Cemetery National Monument, this memorial marker would more properly be called The Fort Keogh Memorial, after the fort where most of those identified were originally buried.

Maintenance Issues
  1. Is this marker part of a series?
  2. Who or what organization placed the marker?
  3. This marker could use another picture or two.
  4. Can this marker be seen from the road?
  5. Is the marker in the median?
