History:

In May, 1876, General George Custer marched with his 600 troops from Fort Abraham Lincoln to fight the Sioux tribe. The residents of the area waved farewell to the General and his army. While doing so, they witnessed roughly half of the soldiers ride off into the sky mysteriously as the other half stayed behind in the proper position. They took it as an omen of impending doom. On June 25th at the Battle of Little Bighorn, Custer and 264 of his troops (which was about half of the troops that marched out of Fort Abraham Lincoln) were killed by the Sioux Nation.
