Birth: 1852, Germany
Death: Jun. 25, 1876
Little Big Horn Battle Site
Big Horn County
Montana, USA

Corporal, Company E, 7th US Cavalry Regiment. He was killed, along with General George A. Custer and most of the regiment, during the Battle of the Little Big Horn.

He enlisted on September 27, 1873, at age 21, in New York City. He listed his previous occupation as Bartender. He had blue eyes, light hair, a fair complexion, and was 5 feet, 8 inches tall. During the battle, his company was assigned to the Custer Column, to attack the Indian village from the north. When the column was repulsed near the river, the column retreated up Last Stand Hill, to near the top of the hill where they were finally wiped out. In accordance with Indian custom, the dead soldiers were stripped of all clothing, and the bodies mutilated, often with their skulls bashed in, and were often unrecognizable. After the battle, the dead soldiers were buried by their surviving comrades where they fell; a year later, the bodies were dug up and reburied in a mass grave on top of Last Stand Hill.
