Birth: 1842
Death: Jun. 25, 1876
Little Big Horn Battle Site
Big Horn County
Montana, USA

Private, Company L, 7th US Cavalry. Killed in action at the Battle of the Little Big Horn, along with General Custer and most of the 7th Cavalry.

He enlisted on 23 June 1865, in Philadelphia, and was discharged on 22 June 1868 at Fort Sumner, New Mexico, from Company I, 3rd US Cavalry. He reenlisted on 21 July 1868, at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, and was initially assigned to Company F, 7th US Cavalry. On 13 February 1874, he was court-martialed and sentenced to 3 months confinement and loss of $150, for taking a horse from the stables for his own use and injuring it. He was 5 feet, 7 inches tall, with blue eyes, dark hair, and a fair complexion. He was also illiterate. Killed on Last Stand Hill, his remains were buried in the mass grave, marked by the Battlefield Monument. Several documents also list his name as Anthony Assadily, Anthony Assadalig, Antony Assadily, Assdely, Aroldelsky, Assadely and Assackly (spelling in the 19th century was not as exact as today).
