Elizabeth B. Custer
s/t: or Life in Dakota with General Custer
“with portrait and map”
General George Custer’s wife recounts her adventures alongside her husband in late-19th-century frontier America, the only woman who always rode with the regiment (Army of the Potomac). Her work provides a unique glimpse into what it was like to be a woman in the wilds of the rapidly expanding country, as well as offers a different portrait of Custer–as a husband & as a man–than is usually portrayed in history books.
