Wolf Mountain

This is the area where Crazy Horse and his men fought the battle of Wolf Mountain. It was on these slopes that the desperate Lakota confronted the forces of General Miles Nelson less than a year after the victory of Little Bighorn. With no ammunition, in the middle of a blizzard, facing rifles and howitzers they were able to hold off the superior forces, but just barely. A few months later Crazy Horse and his people had no choice but to surrender.
