|Death: ||Dec., 1890|
Born in 1852 in Sparrow, Silesia which is a historical region of Central Europe located mostly in Poland, with smaller parts also in the Czech Republic, and Germany. He enlisted in the 7th Cavalry on 17 May, 1873.
At the Battle of the Little Bighorn, Korn (1852-1890), referred to by his fellow soldiers as "Yankee," was Capt. Keogh's orderly and was assigned to the Custer column but was saved from the fate of the rest of Custer's men when his horse bolted when the troop reached the river. The horse had taken the bit in his mouth and carried Korn through the Indian lines to Reno and Benteen's units on what is now known as "Reno Hill."
He was killed at the Crossing of Wounded Knee - December 1890
