White Swan was one of 2 Crow Scouts detached from Custer To Reno 6-25-76 and was wounded either in the timber or on the dash to the bluffs.
The carbine was-is in Kortlander's Custer Battlefield Museum at Garryowen, often confused with the Park Service museum at the Battlefield.How he acquired it is unknown to me, but many people have held it in their hands over the years. In a questionable move the Battlefield collections were transferred to Tucson. Citing lack of space and security, awaiting the supposed new building. It has never been funded and the collections return to Montana will probably never happen in any of the present park service higher-ups lifetime. A token collection remains, enough to satisfy the uninformed.
