HISTORIAN WETTENGEL ON THE COVER-UP

"It (the Army) suppressed the map showing the entire Little Bighorn region had been thoroughly explored years before 1876, claiming instead that it had been terre incognita! Both (Generals) Sherman and Sheridan knew this was a lie. It was simply a cover for the blundering of Crook and Terry! (who both missed the battle of Little Bighorn because of bad leadership)

It is no wonder the Army also suppressed McGuire's original map of Custer Field, plainly showing as it did there had not been "a panic rout", had not been "a regular buffalo hunt for the hostiles"!

It is no wonder it rigged the Reno Court... It is no wonder the Army blackmailed the 7th's surviving officers who were to testify before the Court!

It is no wonder the Army did not call several key witnesses like Sergeant Kanipe and Captain French. True, French was under court-martial at the time, but he could have been temporarily excused (Reno was also under a court-martial at this time, as well)."
