First published in 1876 it was written from the contemporary perspective of Frederick Whittaker, an author who was well-known for his dime novels about swashbuckling adventurers, and who greatly admired Custer. In a new introduction, the editor discusses Custer, both man and myth, as well as his symbolic importance today. He traces the development of the public perception of Custer as a hero and as a villain, and eventually as a Civil War and Western hero, worthy of honor, but with all the faults and frailties of any human being.
