Was the Battle of the Little Bighorn fought in Montana or South Dakota?

I realize the Sioux planned to keep the Black color Hillsides - with Southerly Dakota, which explains why points started off warming up, yet just isn't the small Bighorn sheep pond with Montana?

"The Battle of the Little Bighorn occurred in Montana. ""The Battle of Little Bighorn was an armed engagement between combined forces of Lakota, Northern Cheyenne and Arapaho tribes, against the 7th Cavalry Regiment of the United States Army. The battle, which occurred on June 25 and 26, 1876 near the Little Bighorn River in eastern Montana Territory, was the most prominent action of the Great Sioux War of 1876. It was an overwhelming victory for the Lakota, Northern Cheyenne, and Arapaho, led by several major war leaders, including Crazy Horse and Gall, inspired by the visions of Sitting Bull (Tȟatȟáŋka Íyotake). The U.S. Seventh Cavalry, including the Custer Battalion, a force of 700 men led by George Armstrong Custer, suffered a severe defeat. Five of the Seventh Cavalry's companies were annihilated; Custer was killed, as were two of his brothers, a nephew, and a brother-in-law. The total U.S. casualty count, including scouts, was 268 dead and 55 injured."""

"The actual Combat on the Tiny Rocky Mountain bighorn, otherwise known as Custer's Final Bandstand, proclaimed one of the most definitive Indigenous National success as well as the most detrimental U.S. Army eliminate in the long Plains Indian War. The actual ruin regarding Custer and his awesome work force furious a lot of white Americans and also proved his or her picture of your Indians equally crazy as well as bloody-minded. At the same time, the Oughout.Utes. government increased it's attempts for you to chasten the tribes. Inside 5yrs, the majority of the particular Sioux along with Cheyenne will be confined to reservations. "
