Product Description:

Custer's Last Stand remains one of the most iconic events in American history and culture. Had Custer prevailed at the Little Bighorn the victory would have been noteworthy at the moment worthy of a few newspaper headlines but only a few among the many battles with the Plains Indians. In defeat however tactically inconsequential in the larger conflict Custer became legend. In Inventing Custer Edward Caudill and Paul Ashdown bridge the gap between the Custer who truly existed and the one we've immortalized and mythologized into legend in our generally accepted reading of American history and his significance to it.
