"The Boy General: The Story of the Life of Major-General George A. Custer" by Elizabeth B. Custer is a condensed survey of the Indian fighting Western exploits of General George Armstrong Custer. It summarizes General Custer's public services, from the reorganization of Texas after the Civil War and the suppression of the intended Mexican Invasion, to the pioneer work of himself and his brave soldiers in opening up the Northwest.
In her descriptions of the joys and sorrows, the glory and the grief, the courage and the sacrifices of the daring troopers of the Plains, Mrs. Custer has well served the purposes of graver history, for her facts are indisputable and are first-hand. She furnishes the original colors with which the future artist may paint, the action which the poet and novelist weave into song and romance. Her pages are crowded with pictures of a type of life almost extinct. Washington Irving in his Indian stories drew on records of a dead past. Mrs. Custer has drawn on living records of an intense present.
The closing chapter is edited from reliable sources, chiefly from the writings of Lieutenant-General Nelson A. Miles, and an article in the Century Magazine of January 1892, written by Captain Edward S. Godfrey, of the Seventh U. S. Cavalry, who was in the battle of the Little Big Horn. Information was also gathered from the letters and comments of Generals Sherman and Sheridan, McClellan and Fry, and Colonel Smith, of Brigadier-General Alfred H. Terry's staff.
Here from an eyewitness, are the stories, leading up to one of the most famous Western Indian battles in all of American history, the massacre of Custer and his men at the Battle of the Little Big Horn. A chapter in western history that has captured the imagination of generations of Americans, spawned dozens of books, both fiction and non-fiction, and numerous movies and TV shows, most of the latter extreme flights of fancy; some racist, while others are downright silly.
