About This Item

New York: Sheldon and Company, 1874. First Edition. Hardcover. Octavo, 256 pages; Fair; rebound in full browbnnn cloth, gilt titling to spine; mild rubbing and wear to boards; water-staining to text block, most prominently to plates; with portrait frontispiece; CX consignment; shelved case 1. After the Civil War, Custer was appointed a lieutenant colonel in the Regular Army and was sent west to fight in the Indian Wars. On June 25, 1876, while leading the 7th Cavalry Regiment at the Battle of the Little Bighorn in Montana Territory against a coalition of Native American tribes, he was killed along with over one third of his command during an action later romanticized as "Custer's Last Stand". Before he died, he wrote a series of magazine articles of his experiences on the frontier, which were published in book form as My Life on the Plains in 1874. The work is still a valued primary source for information on US-Native relations. [wikipedia]. 1346677. Shelved Dupont Bookstore.
