"Archaeology, History, and Custer's Last Battle - The Little Big Horn Reexamined" by Richard Allan Fox, Jr - hardcover book published by University of Oklahoma Press in 1993, third printing - 411 pages - original price unknown ISBN # 9780806129983
"On the afternoon of June 25, 1867, an overwhelming force of Sioux and Cheyenne Indians quickly mounted a savage onslaught against General George Armstrong Custer s battalion, driving the doomed troopers of the U.S. Seventh Cavalry to a small hill overlooking the Little Bighorn River, where Custer and his men bravely erected their heroic last stand.
"So goes the myth of the Battle of the Little Bighorn, a myth perpetuated and reinforced for over 100 years. In truth, however, "Custer s Last Stand" was neither the last of the fighting nor a stand.
"Using innovative and standard archaeological techniques, combined with historical documents and Indian eyewitness accounts, Richard Allan Fox, Jr. vividly replays this battle in astonishing detail. Through bullets, spent cartridges, and other material data, Fox identifies combat positions and tracks soldiers and Indians across the Battlefield."
