Custer National Cemetery

Custer National Cemetery is located on the same land as Little Bighorn National Battlefield. The cemetery contains markers for over 4,500 veterans and their family members.

Some Crow warriors are buried in the cemetery, honored for their service as scouts during the Indian campaigns.

I couldn’t find any references to how much acreage the cemetery covers, but it covers a lot of land. Looking at the aerial view on Google maps, it appears to be a little longer than a football field in length. This first pan is at the beginning of the cemetery, looking east (to the left) and south (to the right).

This second pan picks up where the first pan left off, with the eastern most edge of the last pan behind me. Again, looking east (to the left) and south (to the right).
