G.A. Custer His Life and Times Hardcover
by Glenwood J. Swanson (Author)
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.
Presented here are many of the personalties of this period that we just can't seem to forget.
