Description:
"This book covers the story of the military career of Major Joel H. Elliott, who, despite his Quaker upbringing, served heroically with the 7th Indiana Cavalry during the Civil War. After the war he was appointed as a major in the 7th U.S. Cavalry. For a time, during Lt. Col. George's Custer's suspension in 1867-1867, he commanded the regiment. Upon Custer's return in October 1868, the regiment participated in the campaign against the Cheyenne in Oklahoma Territory. On Nov. 27, 1868, Elliott and his 17-man detachment were cut off by the Indians and annihilated. Ever since, Custer has been accused of abandoning the major to his fate. In the book author Barnard takes a new look at this historical controversy"--Amazon's website.
