Custer becomes our youngest general as a result of his daring and successful Civil War charges, and successfully combines diplomatic persuasion and force to persuade the Indians of the Southwest to go to their reservations.Later when he testifies before a Congressional Committee about graft and corruption in both the sutlers stores on military bases, and at the Indian agencies, he angers President Grant so much that Custer is ordered not to proceed on as commander of the forces to be sent out against the Sioux and Northern Cheyenne in the summer of 1876. However, after pleading his case, he is allowed to go as commander of just his 7th Cavalry, and with them, met his death at Little Bighorn.The story of the Custer courtship and marriage is a very romantic one, and Libbie Custer insisted on being as near her husband as possible in both stages of his military career, the Civil War and later, the Indian Wars.

Consequently their story meshes with the story of our own country from 1861-1876. After Custers death at 36, Libbie then only 34, devotes the rest of her life to protecting his honor and reputation. Her story is covered until her death and burial beside her husband at West Point on her 91st birthday, 57 years after the tragic loss of her husband.This book develops a new theory about Custers state of mind, especially in the last year of his life, as well as its impact on his final battle, and examines in detail the reasons for the armys loss at Little Bighorn National outrage over the Battle of Little Bighorn leads to a more decisive campaign against the Indians.

The story of that campaign, and the driving of the Indians to their reservations are both recounted.The Custer story is not only the story of two resilient and interesting people, and of their great romance, but also mirrors and reflects the story of the American Civil War, and of the opening and development of the AmericanWest.
