A National Guard tank crew on war games suddenly find themselves back in time to June 25, 1876 the day General Custer fought and lost to the Sioux at the battle of the Little Big Horn. They report what they've seen and heard but the officer-in-charge is more than a little dubious about what they claim. They return to the area and when the attack begins they join the fight. When the commander goes to locate them, they find something else entirely. Written by
The helmets worn by the tank crew are missing earphones, although they do have the retainers attached. See more »
Sergeant William Connors, Trooper Michael McCluskey, and Trooper Richard Langsford, who, on a hot afternoon in June, made a charge over a hill - and never returned. Look for this one under 'P' for phantom, is a historical ledger located in a reading room known as the Twilight Zone.

The story opens in 1876 with cavalry men. A riffle shot is fired and it gets heard by three National Guardsmen in 1964.
The men are on maneuvers near the scene of The Battle Of Little Big Horn. Two of them , Connors (Ron Foster) and McClusky (Randy Boone), are somehow incredibly knowledgeable about the fate of General Custer and the Seventh Cavalry. They find a canteen with 7th cavalry written on it looking as good as new. The third man, Langsford (Warren Oates), thinks they are going crazy as they talk about following Custer's trail.
A fairly predictable entry that offers little more than some history and an average supernatural tale. It's alright for a late night ghost story that wont give you nightmares but might increase your knowledge of Custer's last stand.
