The most infamous engagement of the U.S. military with Native Americans is unquestionably the battle that took place on the fateful day in June 1876 on the Little Big Horn river when Custer, and his entire command, were wiped out. This single owner collection, put together over a long period of time represents one individuals attempt to amass images and artifacts of as many of those troopers associated with the 7th Cav., during that time, as possible. Included are over 80 objects most of which are images, some exceedingly rare and difficult, if not impossible, to find today. 1) A BOLD AND DRAMATIC CARVED CLAY PIPE BOWL FORMERLY BELONGING TO CAPT. GEORGE YATES KIA. This massive and wonderful pipe bowl is carved in relief on all sides. The frontis of the bowl with a large seraph relief "7" for the famous 7th Cav. On the right side of the bowl, in relief and in an oval is "G.Yates". On the reverse, in relief is a horseshoe with "F Co." This large and boldly carved pipe is an impressive piece with a deep, dark, rich brown patina that was developed from years of handling and use out on the plains while Yates was with the 7th. Capt. George Wilhelmur Yates was born in Albany. NY in 1853. He served in the Civil War and in June of 1867 George Custer arranged for his transfer into the 7th Cav as Captain of Company F. Capt. Yates was with the 7th at the Battle of Washita in 1868; participated in the Reconstruction until around 1873; went out West to participate in the Yellowstone Expedition of 1873; later the Black Hills Expedition of 1874 & 1876. It was in June of 1876 that he was in command of Com. F under Gen. Custer at the Little Big Horn when the entirety of the command met their demise. SIZE: Pipe bowl measures approx. 4-1/2" l x 3" h x nearly 2" in diameter. CONDITION: Has one ancient chip on upper outside rim of bowl, obviously from its period of use as evidenced by the wonderful patina present. A small, re-glued chip on underside of bowl near where the stem would enter. 2) LARGE CABINET CARD OF CAPTAIN YATES IN CIVILIAN DRESS. Capt. Yates with his classic mustache and goatee. SIZE: Approx. 4-14"w x 6-1/2"h. CONDITION: Generally excellent. 3) LARGE WELL CARVED MEERSCHAUM PIPE BOWL OF CAPT. THOMAS BENTON WEIR. This marvelous folk art carved pipe is carved on all three sides. The front, a large and bold relief spread-winged American eagle with a shield belly clutching olive branches and arrows in its talons and a banner in its beak "E Plubirus Unum". Beneath the eagle is another banner "7th Regiment U.S. Cavalry". On the left side of the pipe bowl, carved in relief, is "Company D" for Weir's Company and on the right side, also carved in relief is his name "Weir". With its orig, velvet lined protective leather case is in outstanding condition and exhibits a fabulous patina. The white clay Meerschaum's patina has turned a light, creamy amber color on the bowl and the back of the bowl with the stem hole has a rich, dark, almond brown patina. The pipe exhibits much use and obviously was smoked by Capt. Weir while on campaign. There is no stem. Captain Thomas Benton Weir was born in Ohio in 1838 and attended the University of Michigan. He served in the Civil War and was promoted to Lt. Col. For his services in battle against Nathan Bedford Forrest. He was also involved with Reconstruction in Texas and served on the staff of Gen. Custer. Capt. Weir had a bumpy tenure of service in the military and on more than one occasion came close to discharge. On that fateful day in 1876 he was in command of Co. D and assigned to Benteen's battalion. He and Benteen arrived too late to assist Reno in his fight, but at the time of arrival Weir could hear the battle raging in Custer's direction. Though he had no orders at that time and while the rest of the battalion was hesitant Weir set off, with his Company, in Custer's direction in hopes of providing support. He was eventually forced by attacking Indians to turn back. The furthest point that he managed to advance to before being turned back is now referred to as "Weir's Point". Weir survived the battle but in December of that same year he died in New York. SIZE: Approx. 3-1/2"l x 3" x 1-3/4" diam. CONDITION: Very good. 4) LARGE CABINET CARD OF CAPT. THOMAS BENTON WEIR.

He entered West Point in 1857 and did very, very poorly as a student, in fact, last in class ranking. Fortunately for him the Civil War created a great demand for officers, even ones at the bottom of their class. He truly distinguished himself at Gettysburg where he led his four regiments of Michigan Cavalry on June 28th, 1863. Three days prior to the Battle of Gettysburg, General Pleasanton promoted Custer from Captain to Brigadier General of Volunteers and as a result of his former bravery and fearlessness in engagements, became one of the youngest Generals in the Union Army at 23. On July 3rd at Gettysburg, Custer once again distinguished himself in multiple fearless charges with his 1st Michigan cavalry which eventually broke the back of the Confederate assault on the West side of the line. Custer was brave, arrogant, showy, calculating and fearless as a leader, as such his actions alienated him form some of his commanders and he was dismissed from the military for a period of time but managed to regain his commission through the help of various commanders who admired him. In June of 1876, while operating under Brigadier General Terry, he discovered an encampment of what he thought were Sioux Indians on the Little Big Horn River. Rather than call for support from Terry and risk the Indians escaping and his opportunity for glory, he elected to immediately attack the village, dividing his command, sending Reno in at one end and he looping around with his command to the other end, intending to create a "pincher" movement. Unbeknownst to him, the encampment was not simply of Sioux Indians but a conglomeration of numerous tribe and numbered into the thousands. Reno managed to retreat across the river and up into some hills where he and his command were later joined by Benteen and his troopers and were able to hold off the Indians. Custer was not quite so fortunate. His daring charge into the village resulted in an immediate and overwhelming counterattack and he and his entire command were eventually destroyed.
