19. Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument, Mont.

Little Bighorn Battlefield is the site where Gen. George A. Custer and 263 members of the U.S. Army's 7th Cavalry died while fighting several thousand Cheyenne, Sioux and Arapaho warriors in the famous battle of 1876. Although the park was conceived as a memorial for the American soldiers, today both the 7th Cavalry and the Native American warriors who gave their lives in this conflict are honored.
