Infamous slaughter at Little Big Horn???? Don't think native americans would see it that way. Was Custers record during the civil war suspect at best? Numerous times he outnumbered his opponents, had fresher horses, better arms for his men. Agree that he was a most intriquing individual and like another union general, Sickles, excelled at self promotion. As mentioned in a previous post, the Vicksburg Campaign would be a great novel. Numerous story lines, Grant's failed attempts at taking Vicksburg, political intrique with his subordinates, his successful flanking movement, Champions Hill, Griersons raid, etc.
