With so much written about the actual battle at the Little Bighorn on June 25, 1876, the author has now compiled a wealth of data concerning the men of the 7th Cavalry at the time of the engagement. The book presents for the first time the complete military history of every enlisted man on the regimental roll, with particular attention devoted to the well-known campaigns from the Washita to Wounded Knee. The author has culled a vast amount of primary-source material, much of it never before published, to shed new light on Custer's forces and provide previously unknown names for several troopers. The book includes for the first time the 400-plus pension-file and personal-file numbers for Custer's troops. As the first in-depth analysis of the statistics related to the battle, this book is the most extensive work available on the 7th Cavalry.
