Buffalo Bill's Views of the Custer Fight, as published in the Army & Navy Journal on the Battle of the LBH by James Hutchins, p. 102:
Buffalo Bill, who is in Philadelphia, said to a reporter of the Press of that city:
Custer's charge was not mad or ill-timed. Custer charged when, had he been supported as he ought to have been, he would have won a glorious victory. He was not supported. Reno stood inactive when only a ridge separated him from Custer when the latter was being butchered. Reno is to blame, and I told him so. Benteen wanted to go and support Custer, but Reno ranked him and he was powerless. The command was not in the hands of the proper men. They are too old, and lack the dash and vim and vigor for such warfare.
