This Spot In South Dakota May Be The Resting Place Of One Of History’s Most Famous Americans
So much of South Dakota’s history centers around the era of the Wild West, when rough men became rich during the Gold Rush, and Native Americans fought to keep their land. The stories of Sitting Bull and the Battle of the Little Bighorn are legendary, and his death was one of the biggest tragedies of the era. There’s a beautiful spot near Mobridge, South Dakota, where many people believe that Sitting Bull’s remains are buried…but there’s some contention about those claims.
