Brave Wolf's account of the last stand

Publié le par custerwest

"They were all drawn up in line of battle, shooting well and fighting hard, but there were so many people around them, that they could not help being killed. They still held their line of battle and kept fighting and falling from their horses; fighting and falling all the way up, nearly to where the monument now stands. It was hard fighting, very hard all the time. (...) I have been in many hard fights, but I never saw such brave men."
