Just hours after Caspar Collins died in the Battle of Platte Bridge on July 26, 1865, Supply Sargent Amos Custard and his men were killed in the Battle of Red Buttes.  They were buried at the battle site, yet despite over a hundred years of looking, their graves have never been found.  However, recent archaeology has revealed some interesting material that may finally hold some answers.

Call the Museum at 235-8462 by May 26th to reserve your spot at lunch.
