Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 18, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta LITTLE BIG HORN REVISITED This year they rode for cold beer and pop Editor's Note In June 1876 an Associated Press string correspondent, Mark Kellogg, rode into the Battle of the Little Bighorn with Gen- George Armstrong. Coster. He met the same fate as Coster and his troopers of the 7th Cavalry. In recent years, Crow Indians and whites in southeastern Mon- tana have re-enacted the fight on a 'grassy plain a few miles from the original bat- tlefield. This weekend, AP writer Jim Klahn rode in the re enactment as Kellogg. Here is Ms behind-the-saddle- horn report of the mock bat- tle. By JIM KLAHN Associated Press Writer CROW AGENCY (AP) Fingers tight on the saddle- horn, I rode and died with George duster. The end was not as drastic as that suffered by Mark Kellogg in 1876. There was cold beer and soda pop at the end of the trail. For Kellogg and the 7th Cavalry troopers he rode with, the final disgrace was dying on a not day in the middle of nowhere. But time has biimnisbed the bitterness of the historic battle. In the re-enactment, Crow Indians play the part of the Souix and Cheyenne tribes who fought Custer 97 years ago. This weekend, while ists in the bleachers got a bittersweet account of the events leading to Ouster's demise, we players good-nat- uredly sallied forth again and again to do battle. Good-naturedly? Well, usually. But a battle is still a battle. "They better not try to grab me, I'll run 'em hollered a 7th Cav- alry standardbearer brand- ishing a pole. But four bareback Indian riders grabbed him anyway, pushing him off his norse and making off with the cav- colors. Custer, too, is a favorite target. Hardin rancher and bartender, Lloyd Schindler, decked out in a straw-colored hair piece and beard, often is slain before he can make a presentable last stand. While dust, smoke and hard-riding actors present a colorful pageant to specta- tors, havoc reigns supreme on the battlefield. A moustachioed Jim Burg- man of Hardin hangs on with his jaw set as his unsoldierly mount detours around the viewing stand. Meanwhile, Custer is leading bis men the other way. C. C. Custer of Billings, a sixth cousin of the legend- ary general and who plays Maj. Marcus Reno in the show said he sometimes' wonders how the show ever gets off the ground. But sud- denly there are just enough troopers clustered behind a makeshift Fort Laramie as the performance begins. Riding with the men in blue KeUogg sees no end to Indians. Bareback and painted for war, they harass a harassed Kellogg as white and Indian leaders sign the Treaty of 1868. Then Custer and.his men bead for the hills where they will wait out the dialogue leading to the 1876 battle be- fore re-entering the open stage. Kellogg departs with day- light between seat and sad- dle, assisted by a few stick- wielding Crows. Hidden by a small ridge, Custer's finest thread their way uphill to reappear and then charge into the ranks of the Indians massed before the viewing stand. t "Spread out! Put some dis- tance between those Custer yells as the troopers make an appearance on the skyline. Then the charge. Custer's men spur their mounts down- bill as Reno's troopers charge another line of In- dians. Reno is supposed to move faster. He'd like to, but his horse won't, he says. The original Kellogg rode into the fray on a grey mule. I wasn't so lucky. My mount ran off the hill while I at- tempted to make her act like a slow mule. It must have worked. Kel- logg arrived at the battle scene just in time to meet Custer beading back on a dead run-for the staging of the last stand. Wheeling sped up the bill to the knoll where Custer already was lying belly-up in the hot sun. Kellogg dismounted, got bis coup counted, and in death dodged the hooves of the enthusiastic Indians' mounts. The final strains of the Star Spangled Banner waft-' ed up the bill and the crowd began to leave. The troopers stood up and stomped out a grass fire sparked by fireworks used for effect in {he show. Custer had lost again. In one of'his last dispatch- es Kellogg wrote: "We leave the Rosebud (Creek) tomor- row and by the time this reaches you, we will have met and fought the red dev- ils, with what result remains to be seen. I go with Custer and will be at the death." Kellogg didn't know bow right he was. WOMEN'S, CHILDREN; SANDALS Yz Off SELECTION OF PUMPS SUNOS STACKS SANDALS REG.
