Comanche, a horse who survived Gen. George Armstrong Custer’s detachment of the United States 7th Cavalry at the Battle of the Little Bighorn, is being honored with a 150th birthday celebration at Kansas University. Comanche died in 1890 at Fort Riley, and his remains were sent to KU and preserved, where they can still be seen today on the fourth floor of KU’s Natural History Museum.
