Little Bighorn BattlefieldThis knoll was contested by Indians and soldiers. Some evidence indicates soldiers of Company C occupied this position since bodies of Sergeants Finckle and Finley were found here.Indian testimony suggests that Southern Cheyenne war leader Lame White Man led a charge near this ridge.Other theories places his assault near Deep Ravine below Last Stand Hill. "The first dead soldier we found was Sergeant Finley of my own company . . . his body was stuck full of arrows. The dead lay plainly in sight, all being stripped of clothing and we passed on toward Calhoun, finding Sergeant Finckle on the way."
