The Sioux won the Battle of Little Bighorn, not leaving a single American of General George Armstrong Custer's 7th Cavalry alive, meaning that they did not surrender but won the battle.The battle however, made the US fight full force to avenge the death of one of there best generals, which in fact lead to the end of The Indian War and forced almost every Native Americans to move to reservations or to drop there customs and live with whites.(Sorry if I bored you)

The 7th cavalry (a regiment of the US Army) was under the command of Lieutenant Colonel George Armstrong Custer.The Indian war party ( a combination of the LakotaSioux,North Cheyenne, and Arapaho tribes) was led by Sitting Bull.

Sioux and Cheyenne Indians were upset with whites who continually intruded into their sacred lands in the Black Hills, and defiantly left their reservations in late 1875. They gathered with Sitting Bull in Montana. The government tried to persuade them to go back to the reservation and they refused. The government labeled them as hostile, and sent the army to deal with them. Custer, leading the 7th Cavalry, came upon the Indians camped in the Bighorn Valley. There were no survivors in the Cavalry unit after the battle.

The 7th Cavalry discovery of gold in the Black Hills of South Dakota led to a massive gold rush in the area. This caused serious issues with the Sioux Indians and laid the foundation for the Great Sioux War of 1876 to 1877.

No, not anymore than the Gulf War was renamed Operation Desert Storm, as many people seem to believe. Custer's Last Stand refers to the portion of the battle in which part of the 7th Cavalry Regiment personally commanded by Colonel Custer was surrounded and wiped out. Another part of the 7th commanded by Major Reno had already clashed with the Sioux and taken casualties, and the remaining part of the 7th commanded by Captain Benteen arrived later. Custer's Last Stand was part of the Battle of the Little Big Horn, but it is not another name for the battle.

the movies called 7th cavalry starring Randolph Scott. Dandy actually saves the day by returning to the battlefield. the sioux flee thinking custers returned from the grave!!

AnswerGeorge CusterAnswer Except they did not defeat the US army... they defeated approximately two fifths of the US 7th Cavalry.Custer divided his forces into 3 detachments, only Custer's was was massacred... Both Major Reno and Benteen's commands largely survived the battle, and, technically, were left in possession of the field.

Not to be confused with the film starring Mel Gibson's (as LTC Moore) "We Were Soldiers..." also about a big battle involving the 7th US Cav in 1965 in South Vietnam. Note: LTC Custer's command group, including Custer (but not his whole regiment) were cleaned out in the 1876 fight. Moore's command group and many of his men survived the 1965 battle.
