This web page is to show the life of a great Indian hero. Crazy Horse was born in 1844 as an Oglala Sioux. His first name was Curly, after his father, but after his first wardeed at a young age gave him the name Crazy Horse. He had light skin and hair with a very quiet manner. He also had unusual spiritual powers which others called him "Strange One". Crazy Horse's real heroism came in 1876, when he led the Sioux to the Battle of the Rosebud and the Little Big Horn. On June 17, they conquered General Crook and his men. Then eight days later along with 2500 other Sioux and Cheyenne at the Little Big Horn. Some say it lasted only ten minutes as Crazy Horse wiped out General Custer and his men. Crazy Horse finally, voluntarily surrendered in 1877 and was killed by a soldier as he was forced into a jail cell on September 5 of that year. A gigantic figure if Crazy horse is being sculptured out of mountain in the Black Hills of South Dakota.
