    Hello everyone, I need everyone’s help to find the most accurate battle orders possible for the beloved Battle of Rosebud Creek occurred June 17, 1876, in the Montana Territory between the United States Army and its Crow and Shoshoni allies against a force of the Lakota  and Northern Cheyennes during the Great Sioux War of 1876. (companies by companies if possible for the US Army)

    Thank you,

    It’s funny, they could count their men regularly, we never see the same numbers …

    For the brave Indians this goes from 650 Lakota and 100 North Cheyenne until the impossible number of 5000 warriors  …

    I imagine that rosters a couple days apart would be different based on who was sick, who was better, who had deserted, etc. Also, soldiers on detached duty as couriers, teamsters, helping the colonel get dressed, etc.

    This too shall pass

    Totally in agreement with you, in fact the rosters that I seek, it is when the fight is engaged because all the companies saw their number of men to be modified just before the beginning of the fights …

    It would be necessary to know all the mutations of men towards this or that company …
