Custer's Heroes: The Little Big Horn Medals (SC)
Click to enlargeCover
In Douglas D. Scott's book, Custer's Heroes the Little Bighorn Medals of Honor, he discusses the fact that there were 24 Medals of Honor awarded to men who fought in the Battle of the Little Big Horn, but these men are often forgotten in the shadow of Custer and his officers. Scott has written this manuscript so that the courage of these men would not be forgotten.
This 92 page book provides wonderful pictures, tables, and stories of the individuals who received Medals of Honor. Some of these men include Frederick Deetline, who was awarded the medal for retrieving water for the wounded, Private Thomas Callan who recieved the medal after applying for it himself, and many more!
