#413 - 7th Cavalry: Ferdinand A. Culbertson Estimate: $500+

Partly-printed document, one page, 7.5 x 9.5, December 26, 1882. Document discharging Ferdinand Culbertson from the 7th Cavalry, in part: "Know Ye, That Ferdinand A. Culbertson, a Sergeant of Captain H. J. Nowlan's Company ('J') of the Seventh Regiment of Cavalry…is hereby discharged from the Army of the United States." Signed at the conclusion by Major J. S. Conrad, and countersigned by Captain H. J. Nowlan, who certifies Sgt. Culbertson's character as "Very good." In fine condition. Accompanied by two 1950 letters concerning inquiries about Culbertson's service and military record. Culbertson, who was serving in the 7th Cavalry's Company A during the Battle of the Little Bighorn and did not participate in the battle, is remembered for recovering the famed 'Culbertson Guidon' while part of a burial detail tasked with interring the dead American soldiers three days after the fight. Culberston discovered the folded American cavalry flag on the body of Corporal John Foley, which remains the only known flag recovered from the battlefield.
