If that one pic of the Sioux Indians engaging cavalry is supposed to represent Custer at the Little Big Horn the artist made no real effort to represent the correct terrain. It looks nothing like that.

I'm not sure it is supposed to be the Little Big Horn- " Many of these Native Americans were involved in the defeat and massacre of Custer and the 7th Cavalry at the Little Bighorn."

Sounds like this is some action that post dates that battle? I don't know enough about the plains wars so guess what it might be.

There's a number of areas that could represent during the Centennial Campaign. It's a tad flat, but would fit in the Southwest corner of ND or Southeast MT pretty effectively.

Sorry, boys…but the book is called "Sioux Warrior vs US Cavalryman – The Little Bighorn campaign 187677"

mghFond has a point.

Actually, to me, both the Little Big Horn and the Chinese Bridge artwork look like average box art from sets of 1/72 scale figures trying to show all the poses supplied!

The campaign encompassed much more than just Custer's last stand.

That picture is certainly not the Little Big Horn given that the caption reads,"The second piece of artwork, from Combat 43: Sioux Warrior vs US Cavalryman, depicts Sioux warriors attacking the US cavalry and infantry." I do not think there were many infantry in that battle.
