  The dark one is Custer's.

This is located on the Crow Reservation. Park rangers give a tour and educate those properly with the events that lead up to the battle of Custers Last Stand. It has as a very nice vistor center with restrooms. If you look out into the fields you can see white markers that show where the U.S. Army's Seventh Cavalry soldiers fell and died. It's a very humbling sight to see.

Little Bighorn was fought on June 25-26, 1876 lead by Lt Col. George Armstrong Custer. 262 soldiers of the 7th Cavalry, guided by Crow and Arikara scouts, met at terrible death by an overwhelming force of over 1,500 Lakota Sioux, Cheyenne and Arapaho warriors. It was his own arrogance that he could actually defeat such an overwhelming force. It was also later discovered that no only being out numbered, they were out gunned by better weaponry.
