This Cheyenne leader led his people in the Battle of the Little Bighorn. Later, in 1898, his account of the battle appeared in McClure's magazine. After the battle with Custer, General Nelson A. Miles convinced Two Moons to surrender. He later became a U.S. Army scout. In this role, Two Moons conducted Little Crow's Cheyenne band to Fort Keough. Two Moons later served as chief of the reservation Northern Cheyenne and traveled to Washington, D.C., to advance their cause. He met with President Woodrow Wilson in 1914. Two Moons died three years later at his home in Montana.
