They Died with Custer. Soldiers' Bones from the Battle of the Little Bighorn.

Norman: University of Oklahoma Press, 1998. No statement of Edition. A Fine tight copy in a Fine dust jacket. Dead men tell no tales, and the soldiers who rode and died with George Armstrong Custer at the Battle of the Little Bighorn have been silent statistics for more than a hundred years. By blending historical sources, archaeological evidence, and painstaking analysis of the skeletal remains, the authors reconstruct biographies of many of the individual soldiers, identifying age, height, possible race, state of health, and the specific way each died. They also link reactions to the battle over the years to shifts in American views regarding the appropriate treatment of the dead. Item #26477
