Fort Meade Museum

Fort Meade Museum

During our drive around the Black Hills area, we stopped at Fort Meade. This was the fort where Custer rode out to meet the natives (he failed).

It is also the location where they first played the "Star Spangled Banner" on a regular basis, eventually making it the national anthem.

This Fort is very near Sturgis, South Dakota, a place that is very well-known to the motorcycle crowd.

The museum is excellent and recommended.
