Night blast planned at Crazy Horse Memorial

Posted: Updated:

CRAZY HORSE, S.D. (AP) - More rock is being blasted away at the Crazy Horse Memorial in western South Dakota.

Tuesday's blast marks the 136th anniversary of the Battle of the Little Big Horn and 86th birthday of Memorial president Ruth Ziolkowski.

The memorial will waive its regular admission fee after 6 p.m. for each person bringing three cans of food for the KOTA Care & Share Food Drive.

The memorial honors Crazy Horse, a famed Lakota warrior and leader who played a key role in the 1876 defeat of the U.S. Seventh Cavalry at the Battle of the Little Bighorn in Montana. He died a year later after being stabbed in Nebraska.
