I’ve written about horses before. They have played a large role in the story of the U.S. and the West. Probably the most well-known was Comanche, the only survivor of the Battle of the Little Big Horn where Gen. George Armstrong Custer and all his men died on June 25, 1876. The Sioux and Cheyenne carried off Army horses, but left standing was Comanche, belonging to Capt. Miles Keogh.
