Paul Hedren presents "Rosebud, June 17, 1876: Prelude to the Little Big Horn"

Thursday, June 27, 2019

The Battle of the Rosebud may well be the largest Indian battle ever fought in the American West. The monumental clash on June 17, 1876, along Rosebud Creek in southeastern Montana pitted George Crook and his Shoshone and Crow allies against Sioux and Northern Cheyennes under Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse. It set the stage for the battle that occurred eight days later when, just twenty-five miles away, George Armstrong Custer blundered into the very same village that had outmatched Crook. Historian Paul L. Hedren presents the definitive account of this critical battle, from its antecedents in the Sioux campaign to its historic consequences. Join us on Thursday, June 27th at 7:00 p.m. to hear from the author, ask questions, and purchase a signed copy of this new book. This event is FREE and open to the public.
