A fascinating story in which Dr. Kuhlman investigates the account of one Fred Finkel, who claimed to have been a survivor of the Little Bighorn battle. Kuhlman examines closely, and concludes that Finkel knew details of the battle otherwise unknown at the time of his death. Later discoveries confirmed his account.
