Is Curtis reliable? I know that he was heavily featured in the biased documentary "Little Bighorn: The Untold Story", which from what I heard, was historically inaccurate. Could someone shed a light on his credibility?
No and especially about his unpublished so called truths later revealed he was persuaded not to disclose as it could hurt GAC legend . ~ Garryowen ~
Hairy Moccasin, Goes Ahead and White Man Runs Him (l-r) paused at the fenced marker for 1st Lt. Donald McIntosh, who was killed in the valley during Reno’s retreat, 1907. The officer’s remains were exhumed and reburied at Fort Leavenworth National Cemetery in 1877 and reinterred at Arlington National Cemetery in 1909. The marker has been replaced and repositioned; it is no longer fenced. — Edward S. Curtis, Courtesy Museum of New Mexico, Negative no. 160458 —
Link to a Curtis resource and some interesting opinion about his work. Joe Medicine Crw spoke about the photos. Loosely translated he praised Curtis for the ability to nail jelly to tipis in summer time.

Two couriers came up from Custer requesting re-inforcement, and announcing that he was advancing on the enemy.
