Congratulations go out to David and Xavier Cornut. David, with the help of his brother Xavier, made an hour and a half presentation at a conference held at the Museum of Modern Art in Marseilles, France concerning the relationship between the early American pioneers and the Little Big Horn battle and how this reflects on American culture and values.
There was also a presentation made about Buffalo Bill's Wild West tour to Marseilles and the effect it had on the people of France, as well as a major exhibition of famous painting from the American West. (ie. famous paintings by Frederic Remington, George Catlin, Charles Russell, on loan from the Buffalo Bill Historical Center, the Quai Branly in Paris, the museums of St Louis etc.)
It appears the people of France are developing a greater interest in Custer, the Little Big Horn and the American West and David is doing an excellent job in encouraging that interest on the European Continent.
"The more I see of movement here (Little Big Horn Battlefield), the more I have admiration for Custer, and I am satisfied his like will not be found very soon again.”
