"I have collected here, and offer in this volume, a great many bits of now scarce source material, from which you, the reader, may construct a mosaic of your own, appraising the value and proper placement of each item, should you wish to write a story of Custer's Last Fight. It will probably be a better one than many heretofore written.” From the Custer Myth
