Custer's Last Flag: Sotheby's to auction piece of history from The Battle of the Little Bighorn

Thinking about what this flag witnessed makes me shudder, as the auction catalogue describes the tattered flag as having "some fraying, splits, and tears; some running of color; staining, including, evidently, blood stains; with losses from both battle and souvenir-takers." Sotheby's expects this piece to fetch $2-$5 million. If you'd like to read more about the lot, or have the cash to place a bid, check out Sotheby's page on the item.
