all his own troops up tho river. Tho
understanding was that they should
meet Custer at the junction of the.

the Indians at once. II divided his
forces into threo parts. One went to
the south and the other to the north,
while Custer and his five companies
drove at the very center of the enemy.
Weakened by the division and out

Custer and his courageous followers
were soon surrounded. They fought
