On the Custer Trail
Written by Rod Timanus. After a glory-filled career during the Civil War, George Armstrong Custer made a name for himself in the Indian Wars of the 1870s. In this book, as with his prior trek, Timanus begins at Ft. Abraham Lincoln, Dakota Territory ( N. Dakota) and follows Custer and the 7th US Cavalry to the end of the trail for the flamboyant "boy general" and the 215 members of the 7th at the Battle of the Little Bighorn in south central Montana. Maps and photos, contempory characterization of Custer's last trail, as well as descriptions of the terrian as it appears today, are the basis of this book. 6X9 format, 86 pages. Appendix of Medal of Honor recipients from the Little Bighorn Battle, Bibliography and Index.
