If you happen to be out west this month, check out Gettysburg Writers Brigade member Will Hutchison, who will be signing copies of his award-winning book, Artifacts of the Battle of Little Big Horn: Custer, the 7th Cavalry & the Lakota and Cheyenne Warriors at various locations around the national monument in Montana.
The book is not only filled with Will’s great writing and research about the battle, but it also has hundreds of full-color photographs of artifact – both Indian and white – of the battle. Some of the artifacts have never before been photographed.
Since Will is a member of our group, I can tell you that he spent a couple years traveling to various locations to take high-resolution color photographs, shot from various angles. It serves well as a reference book or just a tabletop book where you can enjoy the photos.
This year is the 142nd anniversary of the battle. The National Park Service has a full day of events at the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument on June 25th, 2018. The Battle of Little Bighorn or Custer’s Last Stand was a battle between Lakota, Northern Cheyenne, and Arapaho tribes and the 7th Cavalry Regiment of the United States Army. The Native Americans emerged victorious from the battle.
