The Last Stand
The Last Stand Custer, Sitting Bull, and the Battle of the Little Bighorn By Philbrick, Nathaniel Book - 2010

This is a very comprehensive analysis of the personalities, perspective of the participants (7th Calvary, Lakota nation, Grant’s government), battlefield topography and an accounting of the course of events leading to the Little Big Horn Battle. After reading this book, I felt I better understand both men, Sitting Bull and Custer, without the influence of legend, and how Custer’s Last Stand resulted in the unfortunate end of the Plains Indians’ way of life.
