Click to enlarge

Elizabeth Bacon Custer was a beautiful and loyal Army wife to the legendary General George Armstrong Custer. As his wife, she endured teh uncomfortable and sometimes dangerous life of garrisons and bivouacs, first during the Civil War and then in the West.

As his widow, this witty and charming lady came into her own as a writer/historian and popular speaker. Her testimony is among the most eloquent and important we have from a woman's perspective of this bygone era.
