A Colt from the Little Bighorn

The Battle of the Little Bighorn, the Battle of the Greasy Grass, Custer’s Last Stand, the Custer Massacre – all are many names describing the same pivotal moment in American history. When five companies of Lt. Col. George Custer’s men were killed by Lakota Sioux and Cheyenne warriors, it shocked the nation.

Artifacts from that historic battle are supremely desirable by museums and collectors alike, with few available to satisfy the demand.

Rock Island Auction Company is honored to bring to the collecting public a Colt Single Action Army documented as retrieved from that hallowed battlefield and then tucked away for over 140 years.
