The leaders of the Sioux on the Great Plains were against the idea of the Governments efforts to confine their people to reservation. After gold was discovered, the U.S army ignored the old agreements and invaded the region.
Custard and the 7th Calvary, which consisted of 600 men, were sent to scout. Custard decided to press on into the village rather than wait for reinforcements. Custards group of roughly 210 was easily overwhelmed by around 3,000 Native American warriors lead by Crazy Horse. Within an hour Custard and all his men lie dead.
The outrage over the death of General Custard led the U.S. government to redraw the boundaries of the Black Hills so that the land would not be part of reservation property. This left it open for white men to settle.
