Birth: Mar. 25, 1852

Providence County
Rhode Island, USA
Death: Jun. 25, 1876
Little Big Horn Battle Site
Big Horn County
Montana, USA

Bailey was a blacksmith with I Company, 7th Cavalry. He was described as 5'7", grey eyes, brown hair with a fair complexion. He was assigned to I Company on July 5, 1873. I Company was commanded by Capt Myles Keogh. At the Battle of the Little Bighorn, I Company was attached to Custer's Battalion. Bailey, with his entire company, were killed during the battle.

Just before departing on the campaign that would lead to his death, Bailey wrote to his sister "We expect to go after Sitting Bull and his cut throats, and if old Custer gets after him he will give him the fits for all the boys are spoiling for a fight."

After Bailey's body was not identified. It is likely that his remains were buried on the battlefield, where they had been found.

In 1881 all known battlefield burials were moved to a mass grave on Last Stand Hill.
