War of the Worlds except this time the Aliens and the Viruses killed the Natives.
Lots of early American History in this region, some good, some not so good.

Crazy Horse Memorial, carved out of a mountain in the Black Hills
of South Dakota. Only the face has been completed and that has taken 60 years,
it was started in 1948 and at the rate they are going will probably take another
100 years. The original sculptor is dead, his wife and 10 children carry on the work.
The carving is done with dynamite, it is absolutely Huge, Massive, BIG.

Straight after Crazy Horse I went to Mt. Rushmore which is nearby and it was an
anti-climax because all four heads are only as big as Crazy Horseís head, still
very impressive and many more visitors
After that I rode to the Wounded Knee Massacre site where Native men, women
and children were killed by the army, it was sad because there is only a Rusty
Sign and a Mass grave compared to Custerís Last Stand which is a National Park.
The Mass grave
The Cannon were up here and the Natives at the bottom of the hill
