William Winer Cooke – Do You Remember http://www.iantique.com/videos/7/1958/william-winer-cooke-do-you-remember William Winer Cooke (1846-1876) was General George Armstrong Custer's Adjutant, and he died atop Last Stand Hill with Custer on June 25, 1876. This week's program is devoted to his story, as we are offering for sale at the Brass Armadillo Antique Mall in Denver a pocket watch, fob & chain owned by Cooke, which was taken from his body by a Cheyenne or Lakota warrior on the day he died. Custer commanded the 7th U.S. Cavalry, and William Winer Cooke was in Custer's regiment for the 9 years prior to the Battle of the Little Bighorn. They fought together in the Battle of the Washita in 1868. They were together on the expedition into the Black Hills in 1874, when gold was discovered. Gary
