The historic Sheridan Inn where the ‘Battle of the Rosebud’ mural hangs in the Inn’s restaurant in Sheridan, Wyoming. The mural is painted by Bernard Thomas and shows the battle of Native Americans against General George Crook in 1876. The natives won this battle and then defeated Custer just eight days later at Little Big Horn. This battle field is a huge part of native history and yet it is slated to be drilled for gas shortly.
