1890 CUSTER 1ed Following the Guidon Civil War Indian Wars Little Big Horn Army



“There are not enough Indians in the world to defeat the Seventh Cavalry”

– General George Custer



First edition of Elizabeth Custers Following the Guidon. She wrote this book with the attempt of creating a legacy for her husband, General George Custer. She succeeded. In fact, she is without a doubt the most important force in creating a sense of legend around her late husband. She turned him into a Western hero and martyr, which slightly differs from the truth in his military failures, mainly at the Battle of Little Big Horn.



This work includes a description of the march into Indian Territory, dealing with scouts, the Battle of the Washita, Indian prisoners and trials, hunting records, army housekeeping, Indian captivity of white women, and more!
