The Battle of the Little Bighorn, known to the Lakota and other Plains Indians as the Battle of the Greasy Grass and also commonly referred to as Custer's Last Stand, was an armed engagement between combined forces of the Lakota, Northern Cheyenne, and Arapaho tribes and the 7th Cavalry Regiment of the United States Army.

Military personnel surveyed land; enforced government policy; protected settlers; and guarded stage, mail, and telegraph routes.

Expanding settlement led to conflicts with the many Indian nations. In less than three hours on November 4,American Indians destroyed the United States Army, inflicting more than casualties on a force of some 1, men.
