Sept. 9 – On this day in Montana history in 1967 another chapter in the story of the Battle of the Little Big Horn was written when Major Marcus Reno was reburied at the Custer Battlefield National Cemetery near Hardin. He died in 1889 in disgrace -- partially for his then viewed failure to support Custer in the battle. He had been buried in an unmarked grave in Glenwood Cemetery in Washington, D.C.
