Vincent Charles is one of the most famous privates of the Seventh Cavalry. He was killed by Indian warriors at Little Bighorn while Benteen's men were cowardly retreating from Weir Point. The CSI team at Little Bighorn rebuilt his face, based on his skull, as it is shown in this video.
Other Swiss soldiers were killed alongside Custer, or survived with Major Reno.
They were modest farmers who left their fatherland to gain a better life
They believed in the American dream and were ready to bleed for it
It is about time that their Home honors them.
(music: traditional Swiss song : "Lord, I ask Your protection for my country")
