Vintage black and white lithograph print circa 1878 entitled "General Custer's Death Struggle - The Battle of the Little Big Horn". It depicts the Battle of the Little Bighorn in 1876 in which George Custer was killed and much of the US Army 7th Cavalry Regiment was wiped out by a combined force of Lakota-Northern Cheyenne Native Americans. The battle, commonly known as Custer's Last Stand, occurred on June 25 and 26 near the Little Bighorn River in Montana and was the most famous action of the Great Sioux War of 1876 - 1877. The massacre is remembered by Native Americans as the Battle of Greasy Grass Creek. Print by The Pacific Art Company, artist Henry Steinegger (1831 - 1917).
