The name of Custer has become a byword Today when someone is involved in seemingly hopeless circumstances references to Custers Last Stand might be made On the surface and even after some investigation the case could be made that Custer was the victim of his own mistakes and recklessness This case cannot be confirmed only opinionized and acknowledged to be a possible conclusion The case made here is one which notes that the men under Custers command on June 25 1876 failed him and in failing him certainly doomed him The purpose of this essay is not to slander the Indian nations with whom Custer fought against that day The Sioux and other tribes were just defending there home Treaties had been made with these Indians granting them the Dakota Territory and the region of the Black Hills forever Treaties that white men drew up and signed gave them this land In 1874 Gold was discovered in the region of the Black Hills on Indian land With the discovery of Gold treaties were thrown aside and forgotten The Indian nations whom Custer fought in 1876 were fighting to protect their lives their families and their land The Government had indeed directed that all Indians move onto reservations by Jan 31 1876 or be deemed hostile In their remote and scattered winter camps it was likely that many Indian tribes did not receive these orders and could not have reached the government agencies with their women and children if they had Custer and the United States Government were not in the right on June 25 1876 Indeed the whole Indian policy is a dark page in any history If you read any sources on Custer he was either loved or hated The governing powers in 1876 were no exception to this General Sheridan admired Custer President Grant
