ABOUT fourteen months after "Custer's Last Charge," on the Little Big Horn, others place the estimate at thirty and none over thirty-five -- but we, after two long and hard days' ride from the head of the Little Horn in the mountains.   The Repository published the account of Custer's historic final battle nearly two weeks after the event took place at the Little Big Horn River in

      Custer's body found as if asleep does sound highly romanticized. Aside from battle wounds and whatever mutilations, Custer, along with all his men lay in the heat and sun for two days. Scavergers, insects, and rigor mortis surely took its toll on the remains.   Custer had galloped off to the left after some escaping Confederates, away from the main body, when he heard the bugler. Seeing Custer, the two rebels turned and fled. Custer rode one of them down; at his call to surrender, the Confederate hesitated, then reined in his horse and handed over his carbine/5(4).

    FOUR DAYS LATER, around noon on Sunday, J after three days and a night of marching, spirits were high as Custer’s regiment prepared to mount up. Instead of adhering to the blue pencil line, they had followed the Indian trail up to the brow of the Wolf Mountains. George Armstrong Custer, (born December 5, , New Rumley, Ohio, U.S.—died J , Little Bighorn River, Montana Territory), U.S. cavalry officer who distinguished himself in the American Civil War (–65) but later led his men to death in one of the most controversial battles in U.S. history, the Battle of the Little Bighorn.
