One of the many myths concerning this particular engagement was the infamous "faulty ammunition" myth. According to some "Historians", Custer's demise was due in part to a faulty lot of cartridges issued to the 7th's magazine. The fault was allegedly a weak case head that impeaded extraction from the M-1873's chamber. subsequent examination of the battlefield in recent years found in excess of 25,000 spent .45-55 Gov't (the carbine load, .45-70 was the infantry rifle load) cartridge cases. Less than 1% of which showed any sign of case head stress.
The main reason for the defeat of Custer, was ironically the same for Lord Chelmsford's defeat at Isandwanna in 1879, was the fact that he divided his force within enemy territory without knowing the exact location and disposition of said enemy combatants.

Many people also don't know that the last person to see Custer alive was one Giovanni Martini(John Martin)who was a trumpeter with the 7th.He was the one who took the message to Benteen.EM

Correct captain, and there was also a large number of Germans from the SW Pennsylvania region (over a third from Allegheny County/Pittsburgh), who were present on that infamous day.

Ok, here's one for you ... though I'm not sure what it means:

As you said, Ed, Giovanni Martini was the last of Custer's battalion to get out with his life. He is buried in Brooklyn, NY ... my birthplace.

The second-to-last person to get out of there alive was Daniel Kanipe [also a messenger]. Guess where he's buried? Right here in little ole Marion, NC! ... where I expect I'll be laid to rest!

The only two who rode into the fray with Custer to escape with their lives, buried in my birthplace & burial spot [I think!] ... Just one of those weird coincidences, I guess ... considering I've been obsessed with the subject since I was a lad.

Was Marion his home? Don't mean to be dumb and all, just don't know. Would like the know the history behind this, like whether he lived here before the LBH, or just settled here after or was buried here for other reasons.

Thank you,
Runningbear
