Reply To: Custer biographies


Hey, thanks for the good words. Anything written by Robert Utley or Paul Hutton is more than reliable. Custer had his good side–two of his cavalry soldiers from the Civil War are buried across the street from me. He certainly held his own against JEB Stuart on Day 3 of Gettysburg. Still, when it comes to the Indians, he’s pretty nasty. There’s some great work on Custer by William Chalfant as well.
