Item #25184 CUSTER LEGENDS. Lawrence A. Frost.


Bowling Green, OH: Bowling Green University Press, 1981. First edition. Paperback. 6 x 9, 251 pgs, index, bibliography. George Armstrong Custer rode at the head of his cavalry command where he made instantaneous decisions, most of which resulted in victory during the Civil War. The older officers over whom he had jumped in rank soon displayed their animosity. From them, and many others, a series of charges against him were circulated; from these grew the innumerable Custer legends. This volume includes many interesting and unusual Custer legends, which include the alleged fathering of Monahseetah's Indian son; the Annie Jones story buried in the National Archives; Custer's capture of Lee's supply trains at Appomattox Court House that caused Lee to surrender, and much more. Very Good+. Item #25184
