Custer needed to charge across the river at Medicine Tail Coulee Ford.

Reno, to strike the southern end of the vast Indian encampment along the Little Bighorn River, while Custer would launch a bold flank attack to hit the village's northern end. After dividing his famed 7th Cavalry, he ordered his senior officer, Major Marcus A.

Custer’s last move was repulsed, on the open and exposed slopes and hilltops, resulting in withdrawal to the high ground above the ford… and it was here, that Custer and his five companies were destroyed in systematic fashion.
