Mustard's Last Stand takeoff of Custer's Last Stand

The Battle of the Little Bighorn (known to Lakota as the
Battle of the Greasy Grass), and commonly referred to as
Custer's Last Stand, was an armed engagement between combined
forces of the Lakota, Northern Cheyenne, and Arapaho tribes, against
the 7th Cavalry Regiment of the United States Army. The battle, which
occurred June 25–26, 1876, near the Little Bighorn River in eastern
Montana Territory, was the most prominent action of the
Great Sioux War of 1876.

The fight was an overwhelming victory for the Lakota,
Northern Cheyenne, and Arapaho, led by several major war leaders,
including Crazy Horse and Chief Gall, inspired by the visions of
Sitting Bull. The U.S. 7th Cavalry, including the Custer Battalion, a
force of 700 men led by George Armstrong Custer, suffered a severe defeat.
Five of the 7th Cavalry's twelve companies were annihilated;
Custer was killed, as were two of his brothers, a nephew, and a
brother-in-law. The total U.S. casualty count, including scouts, was
268 dead and 55 injured.
