US Soldier killed at the Little Big Horn. Pvt Noshang enlisted into the US Army on January 23, 1872, in Louisville, KY. He was described as 5'5", hazel eyes, brown hair with a dark complexion. His civilian occupation was laborer. On February 10, 1872, Noshang was assigned to Company I, 7th US Cavalry Regiment at Shelbyville, KY. At the Battle of the Little Bighorn, Company I, commanded by Captain Myles Keogh, was assigned to LTC George A Custer's battalion. Noshang was killed during the battle. His body was never identified. It is likely his unidentified remains were first buried where they had been found at Keogh's last position between Calhoun Ridge and Last Stand Hill. In 1881, all known battlefield burials were moved to a mass grave on top of Last Stand Hill. On July 7, 1877, Noshang's father was awarded a pension.
