Combing through my favorite topic of "Last Stand Survivors," I came across a newspaper series entitled, "Bullets, Boots, and Saddles," by John P. Everett.
I combed through the seven articles which are filled with type setting errors; missing words, transposed text between columns, and incomplete names, irritated the heck out of me and so I edited it for clarity. It is now formatted as if it were going to print with mirror margins. I added brackets to my insertions. I also created a table of contents.
I could not locate a current copyright owner, but don't feel confident enough to put it up anywhere as an edited text. I joined thelbha today so I could post it. I also have clean ebook version of Reno Vindicated that I'll post soon.
I hope I don't get too beat up for taking the initiative to reproduce the article. It is not for sale. It is for the interest of LBHA folks.
It is in PDF, but I am willing to provide other formats for those who prefer epub, mobi, etc.
Some very helpful information about where Reno fought and Godfrey knowing to look for cartridge evidence. Whilst this technique was familiar to Walter M.Camp, there was no written evidence that Godfrey was likewise clued up and of course from 1926 onwards, cases and bullets were discovered. Camp died in 1925 but had been photographed with Godfrey collecting cartridges on SSR.

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