William G Abrams
Birth: Dec. 1, 1840
Baltimore City

Death: May 28, 1901

Iowa, USA

According to research at the Little Bighorn National Monument, William G. Abrams was born on December 1, 1840 in Baltimore, Maryland.

During the Civil War, he served as private in Co. A, 14th Connecticut Infantry. (NARA M535 roll 1). He continued his military career after the end of the war and enlisted with the 7th Cavalry on September 1, 1871. The 7th Cavalry, led by Gen. George Armstrong Custer, fought at the Battle of the Little Big Horn.

At the Battle of the Little Big Horn, Custer divided the 7th into three columns. Custer's column was totally wiped out, but Abrams was with the pack train that was far behind Custer's column. He joined the remaining column after the fighting began and participated in the two-day defense of a hilltop that is now called Reno Hill. There is no record of his being wounded in the battle.

He died in Sioux City, Iowa on May 28, 1901. His wife's name was Elizabeth.
