Walter Camp's notes on comments made by Pvt. Walter Sterland (M Co.) about the Little Big Horn battle (IU,UE64) recorded on Feb. 5, 1913, with my annotations in brackets:
[Sterland] Says [that Pvt. Henry] Voight [of M Co.] was killed on the [Reno] hill among the horses. [Camp:] Better verify this by someone else before accepting it.
Sterland says he was on Reno's scout from [the] Powder [River] to [the] Rosebud [River]. He drove six head of cattle and was detailed as [ a] butcher. [He] says [that] Mitch Bouyer was along [on the Reno scout]. [He] Says [that] Reno followed [the Indian] trail up [the] Rosebud about half a day and then turned back.
[He] Says [that] J.C. Wagoner [--the Chief Packer at the Little Big Horn--] died in Stillwater, Minnesota about 1900 - 1905.
Sterland says [that Pvt. Paul] Schleiffarth of F Company was with him as butcher [on the Reno scout].
[He] Says [that] from [the] mouth of [the] Rosebud [River] Schleifferth was up on [the steam] boat [Far West] with Gen. Terry and was not at [the] LBH [battle].
Sterland says he butchered some beef at Pease Bottom in July, 1876. [He] Says the chief herder of the expedition was [John] Ayres. [When] leaving Ft. Lincoln, seventy-seven head of cattle were driven along for slaughter [to feed the regiment].
