I am guessing he is referring to Garryowen. Lots of things have been found on private property and can be sold. I think the buyer should aware but it not impossible. There is a marker just as you enter Birdinground property marking and unknown soldier who was discovered long after the battle.
I think amateurs should follow Robb's advice.
A Mounted Officers First Duty is to his Horse
General of the Army (Medicine Man/Chief))
The Minnieconjou White Bull, rescued a wounded Cheyenne from under the soldier's guns at the Rosebud fight. That Cheyenne was known as Black Moon or Sun amongst the many names which the tribal systems allotted to anything and anyone. That Cheyenne was returned to the tribe but died before 7th Cavalry attacked on 25th June 1876. So, besides a Sans Arc burial lodge there was a dead cheyenne somewhere around about.
Cheyenne and Sioux scouts left to watch the troops under Crook had seen that command march south, and, while returning to their own camp, saw Custer's command marching up the Rosebud River. Not long after the man who made this discovery reached the camp, four or five lodges of Sioux hurried in. They had set out to go to Red Cloud Agency, had discovered Custer's people close to them, and turned back frightened. Their report caused much alarm.
Whilst Fred Girard was obsessed with what was in front of him running away in reality a band of Cheyenne lodges 'followed' 7th Cavalry to the Little Bighorn camp. Depending on how far away the running Indians were from Girard then he was probably watching a small herd of ponies being run back towards the camp. Hindsight played in part in Girard's latter day knowledge because there was a coming together of huge travelling bands and camps in Little Bighorn valley above the big bend from the 18th to 24th June when they moved to the location which Custer attacked next morning.
I wonder if anyone of the modern researchers has bothered with Bent and Hyde stuff - first generation research of Cheyenne record by a bi-lingualist of considerable note and an author with incredibly unusual links to the Custers.
Order out of chaos...... that's Bastogne. This, ain't that. It's Lima Bravo and it's empiricists are NUT's!
Now, amongst other given names for Cheyenne Black Moon/Sun was Scabby. He, may or may not have thrown his life away on Rosebud. If he didn't then his brother did at Greasy Grass and to cap it all off John Grass may or may not have passed himself off as.......... wait for it. Have a guess..... Scabby. Another Cheyenne named Scabby was photographed standing at the ford in Marquis's Woodleg Book and although both he and his wife suffered gunshot wounds at Little Bighorn - they did not commit suicide.

If it walks like a duck, sounds like a duck, and looks like a duck ~ it is probably a goose.
