Private Theodore Goldin was one of twenty-four soldiers of the 7th Cavalry to earn the Medal of Honor during the Battle of the Little Big Horn (Custer's Last Stand) on June 25, 1876. Five men received awards for direct combat actions. Goldin and fourteen of his comrades slipped out of the right wing of Captain Benteen's line to cross eighty yards of fire-swept ground to reach a deep ravine. With camp kettles, the fifteen brave men made repeated trips to the river for water while under protective fire from the four troopers in the front of the line. Also fought against Chief Joseph and the Nez Perce. Typed letter signed. Two pages, Quarto on his personal letterhead, Kansas City, Mo. September 11, 1924. This letter pertains to him taking over the custodianship.
