Custer Update

Custer battle flag sells for 2.2 million dollars - Monsters and Critics: "A flag flown by George Armstrong Custer's ill- fated battalion at the Battle of Little Bighorn fetched 2.2 million dollars at auction Friday.

The battered, blood-stained guidon was bought by a private collector at Sotheby's in New York, the auction house said.

The flag is known to be the only one flown by Custer's troops that was not destroyed or captured by the Native Americans who overwhelmed the US troops in the battle in what is now the western state of Montana."
