​Black Hills State University’s Leland D. Case Library for Western Historical Studies and the High Plains Western Heritage Center are jointly sponsoring a talk by Paul L. Hedren on the Battle of the Rosebud. The talk will take place on Sunday, June 30, 2019, at 2:00 p.m. in the High Plains Western Heritage Center’s Bruce Miller Theater. Refreshments and a book signing will follow the talk, with copies of Hedren’s book Rosebud, June 17, 1876 for sale at the event. 

The battle was fought between U.S. troops, led by Brigadier General George Crook, and Sioux and Northern Cheyenne warriors, led by Sitting Bull, Crazy Horse, Two Moon, and others. Many, including Hedren, consider the near day-long Battle of the Rosebud to be the largest and perhaps even greatest Indian battle in the American West. It preceded the Battle of the Little Big Horn by eight days and occurred just twenty-five miles away.
