The 1876 Battle of the Little Bighorn, or "Custer's last stand," as it is also known, captured the American imagination. In the press coverage of the time and even in today's history books, Custer is presented heroically. Only now is this story being rewritten. Here, awardwinning Lakota historian Joseph M. Marshall III reveals a view of the battle that has been available only in the Lakota oral tradition. Marshall explores the nuances and complexities that led up to and followed the battle. He examines the significance of the battle, illuminating why and how the Lakota fought so fiercely, even as they acknowledged the inevitability of change. And finally, he considers the consequences of the battle as part of the tragic fight that changed the scope of both America and the American landscape.
