Need a conspiracy?

You've probably had some people sneer at you if you've bothered telling them you are into conspiracies or mysteries. I recently read a post by someone that listed ten basic conspiracies. I'd like to build on from that with a couple others that just aren't so provable but are just as interesting. Some of these you've probably never thought were conspiracies, but, I've probably chosen them because they are really wierd and very possibly are.
1) The battle of the Little Bighorn:
The facts on this battle are pretty simple: On June 25, 1876, George A. Custer came upon the Sioux, and Cheyenne Indian encampment in the Little Bighorn Valley. Since he couldn't fathom the full size of the camp, he divided the twelve companies into three batallions; one led by Major Reno, another by the disgruntled racist Captain Benteen, and the third and last by Custer himself, with another company in reserve with the packs. Custer marched north, while the other two batallions were supposed to strike further south. Reno charged, and fell back, losing forty men in the process, and dug in on a hill across the river, where Benteen eventually joined them. Meanwhile, Custer and his five companies or "troops" as they were called in the cavalry, about 210 soldiers, each armed with a long-range single shot springfield carbine and a colt .45 army revolver. As far as we can tell, Custer sent a detatchment of his men to the river, where they were driven back by hundreds of Indians, fresh from attacking Reno. They retreated up to a ridge, about five miles away from Reno, where Custer continued the offensive. However, as the legend goes, the batallion was surrounded, and eventually, began to fall apart. Custer and all 210 men lost their lives. The next day, the rest of the U.S. army out on campaign rescued the remains of Custer's regiment.
You may ask "Where's the conspiracy in this"? The answer is sickeningly simple: Custer was despised by President Grant for exposing his brother in a trading post scandal. It was only through the direct intervention of General Terry did Custer get to go along with the 7th on the campaign. Terry was in overall command, but for some mysterious reason, he allowed Custer to break away from the main column and march ahead to the Little Bighorn. So, we have a motive. Kill Custer because he ticked off the president. And perhaps, the sacrifice of 210 soldiers was worth it to Washington.
2) The Shot heard around the world.
This isn't a grand conspiracy on the likes of JFK or Nero and the Burning of Rome. This is a more sublte one, that is most likely not even a conspiracy at all. In 1775, the British army marched several regiments out of Boston and into Massachusetts to burn a store of gunpowder supplies compiled by the militia. I'm not going to really go into all the details because we all know the story. The brits marched into Lexington and were confronted by militia. Someone fired a shot. The British killed eight colonists. Later, after they were turned back at Concord, the British infantry was routed back to Boston.
The mystery here is in who fired the first shot. It is pretty obvious that British Major Pitcairn's light infantry company gathered on Lexington square would have been way to disciplined to start shooting. It could have been a militiaman with an itchy trigger finger...or not. The reason I put this in the category of conspiracies is because there were a lot of firebrand colonial rabble-rousers who would have loved to start a war, like Patrick Henry, and Sam Adams. It just might have been that they had payed one of the militiamen to "accidentaly" pull the trigger. I can't prove this, and if anyone can give me supporting evidence that would be great, almost as great as if someone could send me evidence that contradicts this.
3) The murder of Napoleon Bonaparte
After the emperor's final defeat at Waterloo, the British shipped him off to the island of St Helena where he was to die. According to the British doctor's report, Bonaparte died of stomach cancer. But, to many it seemed to convenient. This scourge of Europe finally was dead, just as the English wanted. If you know anything about stomach cancer, it didn't seem to make sense. Bonaparte fell sick very fast, and died with a terrible fever, in excruciating pain. I'm not a doctor, so I'm going to expand this section of my post as I can, but, recently, someone ran a test on a strand of Bonaparte's hair, and they found traces of a certain poison that impairs the victims vomit reflex, as well as light traces of Arsenic. It stands to reason that his British captors wanted him to die, and upon orders from London, they indoctrinated him with tiny doses of arsenic in his food, so that he would eventually die, administering him the anti-gag medicine so that he couldn't throw it up.
4) The train crash in Chatsworth a couple weeks ago.
A couple weeks ago, two trains collided in Chatsworth. Here's the full story at this link.......
Basically, the issued statement is that the engineer was texting when the train sped through the station, ran a red light, ran right over a siding rail, and raced around a corner, striking a freight train. I'm not a train person, but in my mind, it seems that even if the man was so distracted, he probably would have noticed when he jumped the switch. It seems like that would be a freaking big jolt. But, the record shows that the guy didn't pull the brake lever until ten seconds later, right before he struck the freight. It just doesn't make any sense to me. Many people claim that the red light was in fact green, and perhaps the switch was off. I'm not sure if this is a conspiracy, or just plain negligence, but, for sure, it is some sort of mystery. Maybe industrial sabotage taken too far?I send my condolences to any relatives or friends of the victims of Chatsworth.
5) The "Death" of Adolf Hitler.
Without doubt, Adolf Hitler was one of the most evil men who ever lived. Need I say more? But what I am focusing on right now, to wrap up "List One" of conspiracies, is the unusual circumstances surrounding his death. In May 1945, the Soviets were poised to invade Berlin. During their attack, Hitler retreated to his bunker, where after a brief marriage ceremony to Eva Braun, he allegedly took her up to their room, and he had her take poison before putting a pistol to his head. The few Nazi survivors of the Berlin battle took their bodies out, soaked them with fuel, and put a match to it. Soon after, the Russians finished up capturing Berlin, and they found the remains of Hitler and Eva and transported them back to Moscow.
This is where the mystery begins. A thorough medical evaluation of the remains and the dental record has never been satisfactorily done because of the Russians passion for keeping it quiet. That alone stinks of something, coupled with the fact that they didn't release the fact that they even had the bones until the USSR had completely dissolved. Many Nazis including Menegle(who burns in hell) to South America. With all of the confusion and war going around, many of Hitler's prized possessions, such as the spear of destiny and priceless art masterpieces from the Louevre vanished from war-torn Germany, along with many U-Boats. Isn't it concievable that Hitler got away from Berlin, faking his own death( there was no real way to tell from the burn remains), and got aboard a U-Boat? Hopefully, since no record of him ever escaping to Brazil has ever been found, he either burned in Berlin, or drowned in another depth-charged U-Boat.
