Sole survivor of the Custer Brigade at the Battle of Little Big Horn. Curley was one of several Crow scouts attached to Custer's command. He later stated that he escaped in the dust, smoke and turmoil of the battle by disguising himself as a Sioux. He made his way down the Little Big Horn to its junction with the Big Horn River, and reported to the Commander at the supply ship, "Far West," that the battle had been fought and all the whites killed. He was born in 1857 and died in 1923.
