You're Traveling Through an Anticlimactic Dimension

At McSweeney's, Jim Stallard offers some anticlimactic Twilight Zone episodes. A quick, amusing read, of which my favorite episode is:
Ghost War

During maneuvers near the site of Custer's Last Stand, three National Guardsmen find themselves plunged into the Battle of Little Big Horn. After the men radio for help, the cowboys and Indians are forcibly removed and security is beefed up in the area.
All seem to be based on actual episodes, of which this one would be "The 7th is Made Up of Phantoms" from the fifth season.
