A STEAMBOAT WITH SPURS?


-----------------------------------------------------
You know I'm not a big "Cowboys & Indians" fan....but it is very hard for me to believe that many individuals are aware to the heroic role played by the Army river steamer "Far West".....in the Battle of the Little Big Horn.

Actually the most famous cavalry battle in the west....and I've also learned that this battle...had an episode that saw the use of an Army steamboat to supply troops and to evacuate the wounded.  

So...if you want to read about how the steamboat became an integral part of a cavalry expedition....it is a chapter in American military history that may be of interest to you.

Just click on this link....and it will unfold before you:


Hope you enjoy!!
