A wife’s premonition spared Lieutenant Francis M. Gibson from the fate that overtook General George A. Custer and the Seventh U. S. Cavalry. At her insistence, he declined a transfer that would have placed him in the Battle of the Little Bighorn, but he was on the scene immediately after it. Gibson’s letters detailing the devastation, together with his wife’s reports on the women at the army posts waiting for news, allow a fresh perspective on "Custer's Last Stand." Told in the first person, With Custer's Cavalry represents the story of Katherine Gibson, the author's mother, who supplied all of the material.

Mrs. Gibson describes a phase of army life during the 1870s and 1880s that has received scant attention--a gala wedding, a baby's funeral, a sewing bee, a buffalo stampede, a smallpox epidemic. She provides candid glimpses of her good friends, the Custers. And every page brings the reader closer to the intimate events surrounding the most infamous battle in the history of the West.

From the Back Cover:

A wife's premonition spared Lieutenant Francis M. Gibson from the fate that overtook General George A. Custer and his men in the Seventh U.S. Cavalry.

Review:

"One of the classic Custer pieces."-Paul Hutton, author of "Phil Sheridan and His Army"

"The Custer battle has been analyzed to the last detail-as nearly as any battle can be, when every white man in it was killed. But these freshly told stories of the Army wives those men left behind . . . paint in the background of the oft-told battle story."-Lewis Gannet, "Boston Transcript"
