Benteen At Little Big Horn


I should have included this picture of Frederick Benteen at the cemetery at Little Big Horn in the last post but I don't quite have it all pulled together today. An interesting picture, it shows Benteen, fourth from the left, returning to Little Big Horn with other veterans of the battle.

Very interesting photo of Benteen. I have been researching the life of John Martin, Custer's bugler, and the one who delivered the fateful last note to Benteen, for some time. I've seen many pics, but never this one. Do you have any more info on it? My site and the Marin article appear: http://shutuptheblog.blogspot.com/

Very nice site, too, on STL baseball! Some excellent photographs and solid layout. I'll be coming back for sure.

Glad you like the site and the photo. Off the top of my head, I can't remember where I found the photo. I've done a really poor job over the years documenting where I found the photos I have in my files. When I started collecting them, I never realized I'd need the source information. If you're interested in the source of the photo, let me know and I'll see if I can find something.
