Custer’s last stand began today so here are some sexy cowboys and Indians [SLIDESHOW]

June 25 marks the anniversary of the beginning of the two-day battle of Little Big Horn, also known as Custer’s Last Stand. In 1876, Cavalry Commander George Armstrong Custer engaged the U.S. Seventh Cavalry in battle with the Lakota, Northern Cheyenne and Arapaho tribes of the Great Plains.

It was just one battle of the Great Sioux War, but it was an overwhelming victory for the tribes. Led by Crazy Horse and inspired by a vision of the attack from Sitting Bull, the nearly 2,000 warriors were able to easily overtake the 700 men of the Seventh Cavalry.

Custer perished in the battle, but it has remained a fixture in military study as well as pop culture. So what better way to reflect on this moment of American history than with Victoria’s Secret models, and Redskins and Cowboys cheerleaders?
