  If anyone could make a reader forget Custer’s last stand, at least for a few hundred pages at a time, it would be T. J. Stiles. Winner of both the National Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize for Author: Candice Millard.   An ex Marine with a gift for writing, Nichols spent more than two decades studying Reno and the battle which both ensured his immortality and his controversial role as scapegoat for Custer's catastrophic defeat. Nichols book succeeds in bringing Reno out of Custer's shadow and presenting him in an objective, thoroughly researched book/5(4).

The "Little Bighorn Battlefield" written by Robert M. Utley and published by the National Park Service in gives the reader a general outline and some in depth analysis as to what happen to General Custer on that fateful day in /5(20). Custer kept this flag by his side for the rest of his life as a symbol of the valor and patriotism shared by him and his beloved 'Libbie'. Fortunately for posterity, the flag was left at Custer's headquarters at Fort Abraham Lincoln, Dakota Territory in as Custer and his men rode to .

  I would like to give a short answer to your question that is based entirely on reasonably well established fact.

Stiles talked about his book Custer’s Trials: A Life on the Frontier of a New America, in which he recalls the life of General George Armstrong Custer. Report Video Issue Javascript must be.

Dippie investigates the body of legend surrounding the battle on a bloody Sunday in A lasting impression after reading Custer’s Trials is that George Armstrong Custer was a man who always seemed to be in the right place at the right time—until he died being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Pulitzer Prize winner T.J. Stiles (The First Tycoon) chronicles Custer’s knack for being present at significant historic events and around remarkable historical figures. After 22 years of inquiry and note-taking (apparently a labor of love) among Arapahoe, Cheyenne and Sioux survivors of the Battle at Little Big Horn, the story that emerges is roughly this: Custer's men brutally murdered a ten-year old child and then attacked Sitting Bull's camp; the Battle was decided by the superior strategy of the Indian Chief; it was not a massacre, though of course.
