On this day (25 June) in 1876 Peter Thompson from Markinch in Fife was serving as a trooper in the 7th Cavalry. For his bravery in helping the wounded during the Battle of Little Big Horn he was awarded America’s highest decoration The Medal of Honor.
Thompson was just one of eight Scots who fought in the Little Big Horn campaign under General George Custer. Three of them were killed in action.
Although Custer was not Scottish it’s possible he went to his death thinking he was.
About eight weeks before he died Custer got a letter from an Orkney businessman called James Cursiter saying he thought they were related.
Custer wrote to his wife days later saying he now believed his family may have originated in Orkney.
