Custer's Last Stand
www.ykreol.com is the maker of these 1/72nd scale soft plastic figures.
This figure looks like he is in a prone firing position, but all here are dead.
Part of Custer's Last Stand.
At the time it was one of the worst disasters in the history of the US Army.
No one thought that Native Americans could band together in such numbers that they could defeat the US Army in this way.
One of Custer's biggest concerns was that the enemy would get away
When troops attacked a village, the usual Indian tactic was to scatter.
This time the Braves gathered together and fought while the women and children struck camp.
