      On J the five companies of the US 7th Cavalry under the command of Gen. George Armstrong Custer were annihilated by a force of Lakota Sioux and Cheyenne at the Battle of the Little.   But Company C under the command of Lieutenant Harrington charged the surging warriors and then made a fighting withdrawal, staying together as a .

        To my knowledge there hasn't been any. Hollywood has been one of the worst culprits perpetuating myths and stereotypes about the battle. Custer and his men were caught up the national Anti-war sentiment against the Vietnam war about 90 years after.   Our biography of the noble horse Comanche has stated for several years that he was the only U.S. Army survivor of the Battle of Little Big Horn — more popularly known as “Custer’s Last Stand.”. But now, having researched the point after a query from friends, we must report that it’s not so. Comanche survived the battle, yes — but he probably wasn’t the SOLE survivor of Custer’s.

      A second, under Captain Frederick Benteen, was sent to scout the hills to the southwest and to prevent the escape of the Indians in that direction. The third, under Major Marcus Reno, was ordered to attack the camp at its southern end, while Custer took the remaining unit of about men to strike the northern end and catch the Indians between. William C. Slaper was green year old private from Columbus, OH, when he rode with Custer into the valley of the Little Bighorn on J Under the command of Capt. Thomas French and ordered with the rest of Reno's men to charge the huge Indian village, he survived the Seige of the Greasy Grass without injury.. Slaper's description of the scam that the Seventh Cavalry troopers used.
