Frederick Benteen was a Civil War soldier who later served under the command of General George Armstrong Custer at the Battle of the Big Horn. His was one of the columns that Custer split, his being sent on another route to the Indian encampment, thus sparing he and his command. After hard fighting with the Indians who had destroyed Custer, and after suffering many casualties, the Indians retreated and Benteen and his small command were rescued. A Frederick Benteen autograph is a wonderful addition to any collection of Civil War and Custer memorabilia.
