SPOTTS, DAVID L. - Campaigning With Custer, 1868-69

Title: Campaigning With Custer, 1868-69
Description: University of Nebraska Press, 1988. First Edition, Paperback. As New. 9780803291744 239 Pages. First Bison Book Printing. General Philip Sheridan's 1868-69 winter campaign against the Cheyennes and allied tribes was the most successful post-Civil War Indian expedition. Many of the participants, including Sheridan and his favorite combat commander, George A. Custer, left memoirs of the campaign. The narratives of newspaper correspondent De B. Randolph Keim, Sheridan's Troopers on the Borders, and seventh Cavalry captain Albert Barnitz, Life in Custer's Cavalry, have been published as Bison Books. All of these accounts however, present the campaign from the perspective of the top command. In this work David L. Spotts gives them the keen observations of an intelligent, perceptive young volunteer enlisted man. His narrative, rich in detail, may well be the best memoir of that campaign. Spotts offers a stirring account of the terrible winter march of the Nineteenth Kansas, the Battle of the Washita, the founding of Fort Sill, and Custer's rescue of the sweetwater captives. His tale is populated with colorful characters, including hard-edged Phil Sheridan, dashing George Custer, scouts California Joe and Jack Stillwell, and the bold Kiowa chief Satanta. Spott's memoir is good history and high adventure. Size: 14 x 1.2 x 22 cm. 239 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Category: History; American West; General Custer. ISBN: 0803291744. ISBN/EAN: 9780803291744. Inventory No: 189305.
