WEIR POINT WITNESS
source: WMRH's Story of the Custer Fight, in Hutchins’ Papers of E.S. Curtis, pp. 53-54 

Here is an other account that says that Custer was still fighting when Benteen was on Weir Point (6 p.m., a proof that the battle wasn't short).

“Benteen gave the command to move [to Weir Point]. Then we went back. We looked back and saw Custer still fighting. We went toward a hill where there was a breastwork of mules (Reno Hill)"
