North Dakota, Somewhere

Ft. Abraham Lincoln

image

Toured Ft. Abraham Lincoln. Home of the 7th Calvary.

This is where Custer was at when he left to get his men killed at Little Bighorn. Not a Custer fan. The American military has so many better leaders in our history.

Some of his men who were killed at the battle.

But Fort and history was cool.

Even cooler is that this is the site of the On-A-Slant Mandan Village

Earth lodges was their home dating back to the 1500’s. A smallpox epidemic practically wiped them all out.

It was abandoned when Lewis and Clark arrived. The survivors went to the Knife River

Amazing structures still used and sacred to the Mandan people.
