Re: 100 Word Story

OK. My 2 penneth:

The cavalary soldiers gathered around the smoking camp fires. Sparks dissipating into the cold dark Montana air. Some in silent thought of loved ones at home, Some grabbing a much needed few minutes sleep, others making nervous conversation with comrades. The sound of the distant river could be faintly heard as itís waters rushed and tumbled though the night. Tethered horses hooves pawing restlessly against the hard rocky ground.

Soon the first hint of another day would appear with a glimmer of dawn light on the black horizon. The date is June 25, 1876. The river, The Little Big Horn.
