Product Description

Whittaker, Frederick. A COMPLETE LIFE OF GEN. GEORGE A. CUSTER. NY: (1876). 1st Ed., 648p., ft., illus., plates, maps, (Custer High Spot 1)

This, the first biography of the man, did much to help create the mythology of Custer and the Battle of the Little Big Horn. Writing in the wake of “Custer’s Last Battle,” Whittaker creates a Custer and his lieutenants that are flawless and heroic. The Custer of legend has its source in this biography, and was then picked up by Libbie Custer in her adoring reminiscences.
