Goes Ahead
Birth: unknown
Death: May 31, 1919
Crow Agency
Big Horn County
Montana, USA

US Army Scout. Goes Ahead was one of several Crow scouts who accompanied George Armstrong Custer against the Sioux and Cheyenne Nations in the Summer of 1876. Just before Custer's Battalion engaged the Sioux and Cheyenne on June 25, 1876, Custer released his scouts. Goes Ahead and several other scouts joined up with Major Marcus Reno's Battalion and participated in the Hilltop Fight. After the battle Goes Ahead married Pretty Shield and settled on the Crow Reservation, near the Bighorn Battlefield. Up until the time of his death, Goes Ahead was sought out for his knowledge of the Battle of the Little Bighorn. From interviews and visits of the battlefield with him, historians and researchers were able to clarify some of the mystery about Custer's movements just prior to his final battle. Years after Goes Ahead's death archeological digs of the battlefield supported his story of what he had seen. Goes Ahead is often quoted and listed as a source in many books about the Battle of the Little Bighorn.
