The Battle of the Little Bighorn on June 25-26, 1876, is one of the most controversial and studied events in American history. First seen as the heroic sacrifice of Lt. Col. George Armstrong Custer and the 7th Cavalry against the combined forces of the Lakota and Cheyenne in the further settlement of the West, it has emerged as another tragic chapter in the treatment of American Indians.
Vincent A. Heier is a lifelong student of Little Bighorn and its relationship to popular culture. Currently chair of the symposium of the Custer Battlefield and Museum Association, he has written and lectured on the topic. The battlefield in present-day southeastern Montana remains a popular destination for tourists and scholars alike! Featuring black and white photography from the time, this book makes for a great read before you visit the battlefield yourself!
