Perhaps no other event in American history has been as glorified in popular culture and subsequently vilified as "Custer’s Last Stand." In his time, Gen. George Armstrong Custer was a valiant Civil War hero, and his death at Little Bighorn was a national travesty. Yet records now show he was a genocidal maniac bent on slaughtering the Plains Indians. For Native Americans, this would be their last great victory against the white settlers and their government. This gripping documentary reinvestigates this epic battle from the white and Native perspectives in an effort to fully understand what actually happened. 1992/color/60 min/NR/fullscreen.
