From Walter Camp's field notes, Box 6, Folder 7, Unclassified Envelope 82, from his interview with Pvt. William Morris, with my annotations in brackets:
Meyer and Gordon [were] killed right where [the] bluffs begin to be steep (where I [ie. Camp] took [the] photo of Knipe). [Pvt. Wm.] Morris [was] with all these men and all the horses [were] hit at [the] same time. The Indians that fired these shots were among [the] bluffs on [the] east side of [the] river, to [the] right and front of Morris as he was ascending the hill. That is, they were in the bluffs and to [the] south of [the] line of retreat up the bluffs. All three men and three horses were hit simultaneously by a volley from these Indians.

"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.”
~ Gen. Nelson Miles, Commanding General of the Army ------
"With our cherished ones deliverance within our grasp we waited breathless two hours, for the order that never came."
From Sgt. John Ryan interview in the Billings Gazette, June 25, 1923:
"In scaling the bluffs, Dr. DeWolf, a contract surgeon of the expedition was killed; also Sgt. Clair [sic. Clear] of Company K, William D. Meyer [ie. nicknamed "Tinker Bill"], a farrier of Company M, and Henry Gordon of the same company. Their bodies, with a number of others, lay under our guns, so that the Indians did not get a chance to scalp them."
