Interview with John McGuire, date unknown.1

Note

THE STORY OF PRIVATE JOHN MCGUIRE

American Cavalry TrooperMcGUIRE SAYS Custer was arrested by Terry's order twice before got to Powder river for trying to advance too far ahead of column with escort and without permission. Three cos. made a scout up Little Missouri River under Custer himself.

Reno's scout out 12 days. C Troop was along, thinks B Troop along, also D crossed divide, hit Powder and Tongue and then crossed divide, hit Tongue and Rosebud.

Two Gatling guns along. There were a few infantrymen with the Gatlings. Each Gatling hauled by four horses. At some of the ravines had to unlimber guns and unhitch horses and haul over by hand. Passed over very rough ground, rougher than they found beyond Rosebud. At one time men lifting and pulling guns got tired and gave up, and other men had to be sent back to get them up. They were abandoned only temporarily at any time. Never were abandoned with thought of leaving them. Thinks it a great misfortune were not taken to Little Bighorn, as ground was not nearly so rough as had been back on Reno's scout. On Reno's scout one of B troop's pack mules fell down in the water and spoiled the provisions and this is one reason why ran short of rations ... ran out of provisions and thought would starve before found Custer and rest of regiment.

Left band at Powder River and took horses to go on expedition to Little Bighorn. Hardtack which fell off mule on night of June 24. Says reason Sioux scouts broke into boxes was to carry back hardtack as trophies to show their chiefs how close they got to soldiers.

Saw where Indians had killed buffalo on Rosebud, and Mitch Bouyer2 [Mitch Boyer] told him that Indians had herded buffalo ahead of them and that such was reason for such a big trail, which in some places was spread out all over the country. Says Custer had kept Bouyer ahead of column all along. Bouyer said he had told Custer there must be a very large village ahead and Custer said: "Show them to me," meaning he would believe it only after he would see them...
