The Sioux circled. In many directions but stayed between the soldiers and the women. Cheyennes did the same. It is about eight miles from the Reno Creek separation, where the Custer battalion left Reno's command, to the murky waters of the Bends crossing place below Curley's place. The Cheyenne's circled over Greasy Grass Ridge and on up to Battle Ridge.
