Where Reno Charged and Custer Watched

Now, this is a view from where Custer watched the start of Reno's charge. This is the last place that Custer was seen alive by survivors of the battle, other than Custer's orderly of the day Trumpeter Giovanni Martin, who would shortly carry Custer's last order, which urged Benteen to Hurry forward and Bring Packs, i/e/ the Pack Train. Benteen crossed the Little Big Horn at the upper left of the picture and charged across the open field from left to right. Custer was on this Bluff overlooking the field of the charge, but could not yet see the extent of the Indian Village, which extended for a couple of miles down the river, i.e. to the right.
