There are markers everywhere on the battlefield. The soldiers had been dead for three days and unidentifiable. They marked the spots where they died and buried them where they laid. The graves were very shallow so the wolves and coyotes dug them up and ate their remains. When the Cavalry returned some years later the battlefield was littered with human bones strewn about the area. They took a scull and bones that would make up as many body bones as possible. They put them in boxes and buried their remains in that grave yard as we see it today. Such a sad and somber site to visit. It didn't have to be.
