      Approximately 1,000 Sioux and Cheyenne warriors on horseback came down the hills from the north. (Behind the marker)
      260 Crow and Shoshone scouts mounted their horses and rode up the hill to blunt the force of the attack.
      This maneuver gave General Crook time to organize his men and take command of the high ground on both sides of the valley.
      The battle lasted over six hours.
