The Custer Battlefield Museum is proud to
be authorized by Anheuser-Busch in St. Louis, Missouri, to
reprint Otto Becker's famous lithograph of "Custer's Last
Fight." In 1889,
Adolphus Busch employed the Milwaukee Lithographing Company to
make prints of Cassilly Adamsí 1884 version of the Custer

an employee of the lithograph company, was hired by Adolphus

This is an epic print, and is a great addition for Custer and
advertisement collectors. The reproduction is printed on
100lb. museum-quality, acid-free paper. The color is
extremely vivid - no other reproduction has the color and detail

most famous print of the Custer Battle.
