You do not want to miss this presentation. Guests are welcome to join you at a discounted rate. Let's kick off the year right, and energize our club with this engaging presentation.

The Speaker:

Steve Adelson is an avid historian of American western expansion and the Indian Wars in the American West. He is about to begin his eighth season as a Park Ranger Interpreter at Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument.

Adelson is a writer and speaker focusing on the Indian Wars and Westward expansion. At the Battlefield, he has presented his riveting “Battle Talk” Apocalypse at Little Bighorn; Custer’s Final Battle to thousands of enthusiastic visitors from around the world. He has been a consultant on the epic battle, appearing on the History Channel, Discovery Channel, CBS Sunday Morning, Travel Channel, C-Span, radio shows and other media outlets. He has also been a keynote speaker at numerous venues ranging from historical associations, museums, schools, private entrepreneurial clubs, and organizations.

Adelson’s fascination with “Custer’s Last Stand” has captivated him since boyhood. He has been an avid student of this epic battle for the past 25 years. His book comes packaged with a DVD of his powerful presentation, ‘Contested Ground,’ filmed at the battlefield where the events chronicled in the book took place. This widely acclaimed publication package—book (now in its third printing) and DVD—is the number one seller at Custer Battlefield Museum and other outlets.

Over the last 20 years, Steve has joined numerous historical associations including, Friends of the Little Bighorn, Little Bighorn Associates, The Bozeman Trail Association, Frontier Regulars, Fort Laramie Historical Society, Custer Battlefield Historical Association, Sheridan Historical Society, Museum of the Rockies, and the Pioneer Museum of Bozeman, Montana. He has visited many of the significant sites of the Great Sioux War (1876-77) and other Indian War battlefields.

A veteran educator of 30 years of service, he has taught graduate courses through Montana State University and the Heritage Institute. His flagship courses ‘Apocalypse at Little Bighorn’ and ‘the Bozeman Trail; Days of Thunder’ have provided a fascinating living history experience to a multitude of students.

Steve holds a B.A. in Social Studies from Pacific Lutheran University and a Master’s Degree in Education from Montana State University. He has a colorful flair as a storyteller and his writing is emotionally descriptive. Little Bighorn, Voices from a Distant Wind is his first book.
