Originally published in 1877, these two papers are the account by General John Gibbon of the disaster of the Battle of the Little Bighorn. They are fascinating for their first-hand account by a member of the relieving forces just two days after the battle had begun.

Gibbon writes of the lead-up to the expedition and the last time he saw George Armstrong Custer, as the 7th Cavalry rode away up Rosebud Creek on June 22nd, 1876. Five days later, Gibbon and General Alfred Terry came upon an unimaginable scene of horror.

He describes his own shock, that of his troops, and the condition of the devastated troopers under Major Marcus Reno, who had survived two days of battle before the Indians left the Little Bighorn Valley upon the approach of Terry's forces.

Nearly 140 years later, the Battle of the Little Bighorn continues to stir up debate and controversy. Forests have been leveled to create a body of popular and scholarly books on the battle.

This account by a veteran Civil War general and witness to the aftermath is unique and riveting.

For the first time, this long out-of-print volume is available as an affordable, well-formatted book for e-readers and smartphones.
