One of Terry's officer wrote the following about Custer battlefield
INDIAN CASUALTIES IN A LETTER
source: New York Herald, August 1, 1876
"The Indian loss was very heavy, and it is said that after the battle was over, when Gibbon's and Reno's commands were burying the killed, they were found piled up like cordwood, so effective was the fire of the soldiers. Many more of the Indians were tied to their ponies and thus their bodies were carried off, and others were carried away by their friends."
Letter by an unidentified Sixth Infantry officer (maybe Capt. Clifford)
