Billy Heath. The Man who Survived Custer's Last Stand.
by [Custer's Last Stand] Genovese, Vincent J.

Publisher Information:
Prometheus Books, Amherst: 2003.

A Fine tight copy in a Fine dust jacket. For more than one hundred twenty-five years virtually every history book in print has contended that no white man survived the Battle of the Little Bighorn, where Custer made his famous "last stand." The author provides compelling proof that at least one member of the Seventh Cavalry, a man named William Heath, did indeed escape. In this analysis of previously neglected historical documents, Vincent J. Genovese provides verifiable evidence that dispels the long-held myth that none of Custer's soldiers survived the massacre that took place in Montana on June 25, 1876. What makes Genovese's contribution to the history of this famous event so interesting are public records that he here introduces, which show indisputably that William Heath lived on for fourteen more years after the Battle of the Little Bighorn.
