None Wounded, None Missing, All Dead: The Story of Elizabeth Bacon Custerby Howard Kazanjian
Synopses & Reviews
On May 17, 1876, Elizabeth Bacon Custer kissed her husband, George, goodbye and wished him good fortune in his efforts to fulfill the Armys orders to relocate those Native Americans unwilling to move to a reservation. Adorned in a black taffeta dress and a velvet riding cap with a red peacock feather that matched Georges red scarf, she watched the proud regiment ride off. It was a splendid picture.
This new biography of Elizabeth Bacon Custer tells the story of the famous and dashing couples romance, reveals their life of adventure throughout the West during the days of the Indian Wars, and recounts the tragic end of the 7th Cavalry and the aftermath for the wives. Libbie Custer was an unusual woman who followed her itinerant army husbands career to its end—but she was also an amazing master of propaganda who sought to re-create George Armstrong Custers image after Little Bighorn. The author of many books about her own life, she was one of the most famous women of her time and remains a fascinating character in American history.
A portrait of the woman behind the legacy of General George Custer.
