Pretty Shields (Medicine Woman) states that her husband, Goes Ahead was with Custer at the final battle. Her people actually fought with Custer against their common enemy the Lakota (Sioux). She states that Custer liked alcohol too much and that this was what eventually caused him to make too many bad decisions on the battlefield. Her husband survived the battle, but remained behind to stay with Custer in his final hours. The Crow lost many well respected warriors in that battle and their nation was never the same.
