Tom Custer, Ride to Glory (SC)

Click to enlarge

This book, by Carl F. Day, discusses the life of Custer's younger brother Thomas Ward Custer.

People today are quite familiar with the name Custer, but not because of Tom. This 286 page book tells the story of a hero who was always in the shadow of his big brother. Many people are unaware of the fact that Tom Custer was the first man in history to recieve two Medals of Honor, and Carl Day argues in his fascinating book that a lot of the information that people are given about Tom is incorrect.

This wonderful book tells the story of a man who is often overlooked in the Battle of the Little Big Horn. It gives a new perspective on Tom's life and how he contributed to one of the most famous battles in American history.
