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 battle.  F. Otto Becker, an employee of the lithograph company, was hired by Adolphus Busch to create the master painting of Custerís Last Fight, from which the famous advertising lithograph would be created.

1876 was the year of the West's most controversial battle when Lt. Col. George Armstrong Custer and 209 of his 7th Cavalry troops lost their lives.  It is also the first year Anheuser-Busch began making beer. 

According to the Anheuser-Busch website, "Adolphus Busch obtained ownership of the original Cassilly Adams painting in 1888.  In 1896, the company began distributing thousands of lithographic renditions to saloons, hotels, restaurants and stores.  It was one of Anheuser-Busch's most famous and recognized wall hangings, and one of its most successful advertising pieces."

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 as this print does.  "Custer's Last Fight" is, perhaps, the most famous print of the Custer Battle.

Orders may be placed by calling the Museum directly at (406) 638-1876 or visit our Ebay Store, where orders may be placed through PayPal. We will ship internationally, but additional shipping rates apply - please call for more information.  Prints are shipped in heavyweight kraft tube mailers and by USPS Priority Mail.
