The image of the famous “last stand” of the Seventh U.S. Cavalry under General George Armstrong Custer has transmogrified into myth. We imagine the solitary Custer standing upright to the end, his troops formed into groups of wounded and dying men around him. In To Hell with Honor, Larry Sklenar analyzes and interprets the widely accepted facts underlying the popular depiction of Custer’s defeat. Approaching the subject with a fresh perspective, he offers wholly new conclusions about one of the most enduring puzzles in United States history–the 1876 Battle of the Little Bighorn.
