Little Big Horn Anniversary Coverage

These are articles that I have come across dealing with the various anniversaries of the Battle of the Little Big Horn.  One of the most notable has been the 50th anniversary which was held in 1926.  Several 7th Cavalry troopers who had participated in the battle, including Daniel Newell, Peter Thompson, and Charles Windolph, attended the anniversary festivities.  In addition, several of the surviving warriors who had fought the soldiers also were in attendance.
