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

– General George Custer

 

First edition of Elizabeth Custer’s ‘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 house-keeping, Indian captivity of white women, and more!
