Theo. W. Goldin's Story of the Battle, #1
THE STORY OF THEO. W. (FRED) GOLDIN
One of the Last Men to See Custer Alive
R. THEODORE W. GOLDIN, of Janesville, Wisconsin, formerly a trooper of the Seventh Cavalry, now Chairman of the Republican State Central Committee of Wisconsin, was the last, or perhaps the next to the last, man to see Custer alive. [Note: actually, the last Seventh Cavalry survivor to see Custer alive was Peter Thompson. See Who Killed Custer - Top 10 List for the complete list and sequence of the last five survivors who saw Custer alive.] He has prepared an account of his personal experiences in the battle, which is one of the most interesting of the contributions that have been made to this volume. His description of the death of Hodgson is splendidly dramatic, as is his story of the brief conversations between Custer and Keogh, Reno and Weir, and Benteen and Wallace.
