Custer's Luck (SC)

Click to enlarge




The author describes the pertinent facts of the Grant administration, the embitterment of the Great Plains tribes, and the deteriorating Civil War army. The book is the record not only of the dashing Seventh Cavalry and its leader but also of the Grant-Custer feud, Sitting Bull, the Belknap scandal, Rain-in-the-Face, the battle strategy of the Indians, and Custer's military rivals. Particular note is taken of the effect on history of Custer's recklessness and glory-seeking, and of the superstitions and fatalistic determination of the Sioux and the Cheyenne's.
