David F. Barry posed two skirmishline's indicated to him by Gall, in 1886, and these have been wrongly located for as long as I can remember. It is frightening to realise the use of those interpretations to portray and misrepresent destruction of Custer's command. The tactical fight is an utter confusion of unmilitaryness other than wild escape and evade as the companies were over run, or disintegrated as non military inject into understanding. Well Dick, what happened on Custer's Battlefield? That's simple, stupid - They disintegrated!
Nothing was or is what it seemed or seems in terrain endlessly repeating its features across foreground and horizon through 360 degrees.
One of Barry's skirmishlines is identified as west.... This was fighting that took place along the retreat up and across North Medicine Tail Ck (Deep Coulee). The other was east of Battle Ridge.
There ya go........... Call in an expert.
In case you haven't realised, the markers in the modern image offer something of a clue. Actually, they are an immense clue that should be considered reality rather theoretical supposition. Over to Owen J. Sweet, perhaps............
Hmmm................ How very, very, odd. The markers substantiate the Barry image and Gall.
We know from Barry himself, that the images were taken early morning which is consistent with shadow fall. The location is east of what today is Battle Ridge which was substantially altered by grading for constuction of the Battlefield Road. Some of the earthwork constructed was immense.
Lovely. Skirmishing where markers confirm it took place. Simples - no rocket science and no ethereal theory of cemetery episodes - the entire battleground was considered a cemetery until eclipsed by that in place now, to the west of the monument.
I can offer quite valid tactical theory based upon this evidence and movements by Cheyennes along Greasy Grass Ridge to block movement north or west and south towards the river, whilst the Sioux poured in across ford B, and down from Weir' Peak across MTC to pop the cork into the bottle - but that can wait until current supposition based theory has disintegrated itself in the face of overwhelming veracity.
Good God, man: we can't have that. An evidenced skirmishline on the battleground where dozens of fallen markers stand today! Preposterous!
Stand to! for taps.
