Archaeology, History, and Custer's Last Battle. Custeriana, Richard Allan Fox Jr.

Archaeology, History, and Custer's Last Battle.

Norman: University of Oklahoma Press, 1993. Later Printing of the First US Edition. A Fine copy in a Fine dust jacket with one short closed edge tear to the bottom edge of the front panel. Using innovative and standard archaeological techniques, combined with historical documents and Indian eyewitness accounts, Richard Allan Fox, Jr. vividly replays this battle in astonishing detail. Through bullets, spent cartridges, and other material data, Fox identifies combat positions and tracks soldiers and Indians across the Battlefield. Guided by the history beneath our feet, and listening to the previously ignored Indian testimonies, Fox reveals scenes of panic and collapse and, ultimately, a story of the Custer battle quite different from the fatalistic versions of history.
