Thanks to Gary Gilbert, we add a new segment to our "Warriors at Little Bighorn" page on August 12, 2012. He has dug into the books and discovered warriors who fought at the Little Bighorn and also later performed in Buffalo Billís Wild West shows as well as a variety of lesser known. Click on "Warriors at Little Bighorn" at right, once on that page, scroll down and click on "Warriors Wild West Shows".

In this section of our website weíre proud to bring you as much material as we can regarding the people involved, from both sides, in the Sioux War of 1876. Credit needs to be given to John Doerner, Chief Historian at Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument and volunteers Gary and Joy Gilbert for their diligent research.
Their efforts with The Touch Screen Project involved hundreds of hours turning pages in books, reviewing muster rolls, or trading email with helpful people from the Indian community like Ernie La Pointe (Great grandson of Sitting Bull), and Bruce Brown Wolf of the Cheyenne River Reservation. Results of their hard work are the 7th Cavalry soldier and warrior lists, which are included in a user-friendly computer (kiosk) in the visitor center of the battlefield. Visitors can find names of those buried in the National Cemetery, the 7th Cavalry muster rolls, and the warriors who fought in the battle.
The Kiosk Today -- Installed June 4, 2004
We provide the same lists for you here -- just click on the navigation buttons in the right margin of this page to begin your search for soldiers and warriors who fought and died at Custer's Last Stand or the complete registry of the Custer National Cemetery. You might begin this section by reading Gary and Joy Gilbertís background article on the Touch Screen Project behind the development of the kiosk.
Note: As a result of the hard work of several individuals, the Friends of the Little Bighorn Battlefield was first to provide these extensive lists of participants in the Sioux War of 1876. Our listing will change from time to time as new and more accurate information becomes available. Our information is provided directly by the Park Historian at the Little Bighorn Battlefield, the individual with access to the best and most recent information, and volunteers working with him.
In addition, our organization is the only Custer organization with close contacts inside the Indian community, which is providing us with the most up-to-date warrior list.
