After President Ulysses S. Grant publicly blamed General Custer for the disaster at Little Big Horn, Elizabeth Custer, the General’s wife, took on the role of his public defender. Beginning with her book, Boots and Saddles in 1885, she would go on to publish three books about the life of her martyred husband. This work is the second book of the trilogy written by Mrs. Custer.
