Introduction by Brian C. Pohanka, 65 b/w photos 22 drawings 10 maps 7 x 10 "The Custer Myth is truly a source book. Students of the Indian Wars will be forever indebted to Colonel Graham for his compilation and to Fred Dustin for his comprehensive bibliography." -The New York Times Immediately after news of the disaster at Little Bighorn spread across the nation in June of 1876, editors, artists, and writers made George A. Custer into the battle's tragic hero. The laudatory biographies that followed and his widow's desperate attempts to preserve her late husband's heroic memory soon elevated his reputation to mythic proportions. But historian and lawyer W. A. Graham (1875-1954) was not interested in the propaganda surrounding the Custer myth. In 1953 Stackpole first published William A. Graham's The Custer Myth, a much-needed reference work that presents original source material without the bias of interpretations and misconstructions. Now available in paperback, this classic study will continue to serve as an indispensable tool for every Custer researcher, student, and enthusiast.

William A. Graham, 1875-1954, studied at Beloit College in Wisconsin, Stanford University, and the University of Iowa, from which he received a law degree in 1897. Graham practiced law until 1912, when he joined the Iowa National Guard. Although he saw active duty, he spent most of his Army career as a judge advocate. In 1919 he began to study the battle of the Little Big Horn, and first published The Story of the Little Big Horn in 1925. He later published The Reno Court of Inquiry: Abstract of the Official Record of Proceedings and The Custer Myth: A Source Book of Custeriana.
