I hope this is the proper thread for this. I am researching the 1874 Yellowstone Wagon Road and Prospecting Expedition that traveled down the Yellowstone beginning in February 1874, traversing the Rosebud, Little Bighorn area and returning to Bozeman in May. Am trying to determine names of warriors who may have fought there and later at the LBH in 1876. So far, I have the following names linked to the 1874 fighting...some are tenuous links, others can pretty accurately be demonstrated, but I need anyone's expertise here. Thanks so much; FLM

Here is the report from General Miles of the murder of the five Miniconjou headmen in December 1876 by his Crow scouts. It is a PDF document (as usual) and honestly, the image quality is not world-shaking but as I told Henri, it is a fine line to walk between getting the image too light to read to hide the blemishes from the original document and dark enough to read with a few blemishes. Any Photoshop or other graphics application expert is welcome to come to the rescue.
