Reenacting Little Bighorn

Custer's Last Stand comes to lifeInfantry and headdresses met cell phone cameras and lemonade stands at Friday's performance of Custer's Last Stand Re-enactment as the event provided a historical tutorial for those entrenched in the new.

Filmmakers from The History Channel recorded the re-enactment, which was scripted by 94-year-old Crow tribal historian Joe Medicine Crow, whose grandfather was a scout for Custer.

Covered wagons and bareback riders crossed the re-enactment field six miles west of Hardin as unrelated military helicopters made a pass overhead.
