Actually at least one of the gattlings in the Battery was a one inch on the Custer campaign.. the one that came from Fort Sully DT. The one from fort Shaw was a half inch. Not sure if they had a one inch at that time, or one at fort Shaw ever. No relic evidence has come forward to help with it at Fort Shaw either.

I found years ago (80's) the location (with the Landowners original discovery) where we believed they signaled the Far West from on the LBH, near the confluence of the Big Horn R. The land owners have the casings and 2 mis fired cartridges. All one inch casings ect.
