Custer Battlefield, Montana, 1928

DR. THOMAS MARQUIS and I had done much investigation of the Custer and Reno battles.

Dr. Marquis was the doctor at Lame Deer for several years, and he became one of the best sign language talkers that I ever came in contact with. While at Lame Deer, he became acquainted with quite a few Cheyenne Indians who were in the Custer and Reno battles.

For a long [time], the old Indians were afraid that the government would punish them if the government found out which ones were in the battle. Now, the Doctor and I were quite intimate friends, and he told me lots of things in confidence. It took him two years before he could find out much about the fights.
