My sculpture titled 1876 depicts who is considered to be some of the most important principals involved in the battle of Little Bighorn. Gall led some of the early charges and it is said that Crazy Horse led the decisive charge that killed Custer.

Although Sitting Bull did not participate in the battle, it was his dream of a great victory during a vision quest that brought the Indians together at Little Bighorn. I was told by my guide at the Memorial Site of the many advantages that the Indians had over the Cavalry. Most notable I think was the repeating Winchesters possessed by the Indians, like the one Crazy Horse is holding, as opposed to the Cavalry’s single shot rifles. In contrast to that, it is said that Gall carried only his axe into battle; as a way, perhaps, of avenging the death of his family who were killed by the Cavalry at an earlier date.
