    (circa 1862-November 7, 1891)
    Bay gelding
    Personal mount of Captain Myles Keogh of the 7th Cavalry
    Survived Custer's Last Stand at the Battle of the Little Bighorn
    After recovering from wounds suffered in the battle, was retired to Fort Riley, Kansas
    Remains are on display at the University of Kansas Natural History Museum
    A plaque identifying him as 'The sole survivor of the Battle of the Little Bighorn' was removed in the 1970s after local Indians protested that the battle had plenty of survivors on their side.
    He was not the sole survivor from the US Army, either: as many as a hundred horses lived through the battle and were taken by the Indians afterwords.
    He indulged in a fondness for beer late in life.
    The 7th Cavalry apparently never paid his taxidermy bill, which is how he ended up at the University of Kansas.
    He suffered seven wounds during the Battle of the Little Bighorn.
    He also had been wounded in three earlier skirmishes (1868,71,73).
    At Fort Riley, he would take his place on the parade ground whenever he heard a bugle sound 'formation.'
    He was one of only two horses buried with full military honors.
