. . . like you, will die today. History will record that he is of German descent and a combat veteran of the Civil War and Plains Indian Wars. Two weeks ago, on December 6th, he helped Col. Carrington rescue Lt. Grummond from certain death. Today, after running out of ammunition, he will fight to the end, using his bugle as a club. His body will be left untouched and covered with a buffalo cape; an honor from his adversaries. He will leave behind a wife and daughter.In the end, your body will be recovered and you will be buried in a mass grave at Fort Phil Kearny cemetery. In 1888, your entire detail is reinterred at the Custer National Cemetery.
