Bob, Thank You for the discussion on the famous Anheuser-Busch, Custer Battle scene. I bought a copy of it last year at Garryowen, Montana, because it reminded me of my Grandfather's gunroom were he had an early copy of it. As a kid, I would stare at it and invision the Last Stand! Someday I plan to also get a copy of Edgar S Paxson's rendition of the battle. He was an artist and historian who lived in Montana and studied for years before he completed a more accurate scene. I also like James K Ralston's painting of the fight, which is at the site, and also the one done by Theodore Pitman. These artist, and many others, helped preserve the history of how the West was won and lost. Jim
