Description

This is the first major illustrated book to examine the life of this complex figure and this equally complex battle. Besides being lavishly illustrated and the first true photographic history of Custer, his Civil War exploits, and his Last Stand, this detailed narrative includes the latest groundbreaking research and analysis of the most fiercely debated battle in our nation's history. On June 25, 1876, George Armstrong Custer and his famed U.S. Seventh Cavalry attacked an encampment of Lakota and Cheyenne Indians. By the close of the day, the Battle of the Little Bighorn was over and the Civil War hero Custer was dead, along with more than 200 of his men. It was a shocking, unexpected defeat for the dashing one-time Boy General and a magnificent victory for Sitting Bull, Crazy Horse, and their warriors although it became a last gasp for the Indians' way of life. The battle is over, but even now, 125 years later, Custer's Last Stand still fascinates and horrifies us, continuing to stir conroversy and spark vigorous debate."
