Was he a martyr or damned? A hero or a fool? This pictorial biography of George Armstrong Custer explores all facets of the legendary general from his boyhood to West Point, through the Civil War and his earlier battles, to his last stand. It shows Custerâs family, friends, and associates, military and civilian, white and Indian, at work and at play. More pictures of Custer-related people, places, and artifacts are assembled here than in any other book or museum collection.
