The Battle Of Little Bighorn/Custer's Last Stand, June 25 - 26, 1876. Custom framed 11 x 14 inch shadowbox display featuring an authentic, found, brass U.S. Military issue accouterment attributed to The Battle of Little Bighorn. This piece, from a uniform of a soldier or standard equipment in the U.S. Seventh Cavalry, is from the fabled collection formed by Stephen B. Reed, the longest serving Mayor of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania; his term lasting from 1982-2010. This piece, part of Reed's collection assembled in the 1990s, was intended for inclusion in the National Museum of the Old West that was to be housed in the Pennsylvania State Capital. In 2003, Reed announced his plans for the museum, but unfortunately budgetary concerns prevented it from opening and necessitated the breaking up and selling of the collection.

The Battle of the Little Bighorn, commonly referred to as Custer's Last Stand, was an armed engagement between combined forces of the Lakota, Northern Cheyenne, and Arapaho tribes, against the 7th Cavalry Regiment of the United States Army. The battle, which occurred on June 25–26, 1876, near the Little Bighorn River in eastern Montana Territory, was the most prominent action of the Great Sioux War of 1876. It was an overwhelming victory for the Lakota, Northern Cheyenne, and Arapaho, led by several major war leaders, including Crazy Horse and Chief Gall, inspired by the visions of Sitting Bull. The U.S. Seventh Cavalry, including the Custer Battalion, a force of 700 men led by George Armstrong Custer, suffered a severe defeat. Five of the Seventh Cavalry's companies were annihilated; Custer was killed, as were two of his brothers, a nephew, and a brother-in-law. The total U.S. casualty count, including scouts, was 268 dead and 55 injured.

This original, brass relic, attributed to The Battle of Little Bighorn, is in its original "found" condition and considered museum ready. It is mounted on a backdrop of original graphic artwork, 11 x 14 inches, created exclusively by JG Autographs Inc. and custom framed, in a metallic gold shadowbox display.

This custom display is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity from JG Autographs Inc. as well as a second COA from the Mayor of Harrisburg, PA., Linda D. Thompson.
