Custer's pistols.

Geronimo's Bow and Custer's Pistols

Great museum for fans of war-related items. Great gift shop and very friendly staff.

[Chris Young, 07/07/2010]

At the Frazier History Museum, where "history" means "weaponry." It's the collection of billionaire Owsley Brown Frazier, great-grandson of a liquor baron. Seeing the bow and pistols makes it easier to visualize an epic duel on the Plains that never happened between Geronimo and Custer. Also on display: Teddy Roosevelt's Big Stick -- which in fact is a gun.
