Description

Vol. One in ECHOES OF THE LITTLE BIG HORN SERIES, KICK THE DEAD LION by Charles G. du Bois, is a Custer classic, it focuses on the performance of Custer, Benteen and Reno; Enlisted Men’s Petition analysed.

“On June 25, 1876, the greatest Indian battle in the history of the American West was fought on the Little Bighorn River in southeastern Montana. The combined forces of Sioux and Cheyennes encamped there defeated the Seventh U.S. Cavalry Regiment and annihilated five companies of the regiment under the personal leadership of Brevet Major General George Armstrong Custer.

The firing had scarcely ceased, the Indians had only scattered, and the soldier dead still lay hastily buried on a lonely Montana ridge when it began—the unending, ever-increasing slander and defamation against General Custer. His brilliant record established during the Civil War, his victories on the western plains in the years that followed were ignored. The nation’s hero was slowly toppled from his pedestal.

The Lion was dead.

Like jackals snapping at the heels of the lord of the jungle, the defamers began their work. It was no simple task, but they applied themselves with vigor. So thorough was the campaign that only those close to the fallen Custer rallied to his defense. Now they are gone, friend and foe alike, but the perpetrators of the campaign of hate have bequeathed to history a legacy of distorted fact and perverted truth.”-Introduction.
