129 years after Little Big Horn By John Christian Hopkins

"Charles Windolph died 56 years ago today, on March 11, 1950. He was a decorated soldier, winning both the Congressional Medal of Honor and a Purple Heart. But, his battlefield exploits did not occur in World II, World War I or even the Spanish-American War. Windolph, 98, was the last cavalry survivor from the Battle of the Little Bighorn. The last survivor, an Indian named Dewey Beard, would die in 1955. The debacle, on a grassy hilltop in Montana, has captured the imagination for generations."
