Essay Crazy Horse, the son of Crazy Horse, is a legendary figure in history for many reasons. He is looked at as one of the greatest Sioux leaders of all time.

Even thought they were clearly outnumbered, Crazy Horse gathered his fellow warriors and they fought against Custer with all the heart they had for as long as they could.
