G.A. Custer His Life and Times by Glenwood J. Swanson (Author) Deceased
Starting with Custer's early life we follow him through West Point Academy and his exploits during the Civil War as he becomes this country's youngest general. He becomes second in command of the Seventh Cavalry and moves onto the Great Plains during the Indian Wars.
The officers and men of this classic period are also explored. From the inception of their Regiment until their defeat at the Little Bighorn.
Following the aftermath serious studies were made on the disposition of the dead and collection of the remaining artifacts on the battlefield. Much knowledge has been gained on the structure of the fight, but what keeps it interesting is the mystery; the what if's, the why not's, that we'll probably never know, yet continue to draw us into the next observation or theory.
This Custer book is the ultimate collection of facts. Glenwood J. Swanson was a team member on a Archaeological excavations at the Battlefield where he had seen these findings first hand.
