A museum in Michigan will auction a U.S. flag that was found at the Battle of the Little Bighorn site in Montana. The flag was carried by Lt. Col. George Custer and the 7th Cavalry. It was one of the few U.S. military artifacts recovered from the site of the historic June 25, 1876, battle. The Detroit Institute of Arts is selling the flag to raise money for its collection. It has been valued at $2 million to $5 million. Sotheby's will auction the flag in October. Get the Story:
