Lest We Forget

 January 24, 2008 -- Read the history of the warrior markers

We promise to keep you abreast of changes to the battlefield’s landscape with memorials. Since Memorial Day, 1999 there have been many new additions. On that day were unveiled the first red granite markers for warriors who died during the battle – Lame White Man and Noisy Walking. You can view photos of their markers in the subsection, Cheyenne Markers.

On June 26, 2001 the first Sioux warrior marker for Long Road was placed at the Reno-Benteen Defense Site. Photos of his marker are in the subsection, Sioux Markers.

June 25, 2003 was a very busy day at the battlefield. The Indian Memorial was dedicated that day. Complete coverage of the dedication is in the subsection, Indian Memorial. Also, that day a new warrior marker was dedicated for the Unknown Warrior.

That same weekend another warrior marker was unveiled on June 26, 2003 for the Sioux warrior, Dog’s Back Bone. The article and photos can be found in the subsection, Sioux Markers.

There are memorials and graves for officers and soldiers nationwide and internationally as well. Custer lies buried at West Point and we provide photos in this section. And, we travel to Scotland and Ireland for memorials to Keogh and Forbes.

Sadly, we must add a new subsection, In Memoriam; here we provide information regarding the passing of friends who have played a pivotal role at the battlefield, or the Friends' organization, or both.
