Reviews of the first edition: "An essential resource."--Library Journal " extremely useful reference tool for researchers interested in U.S. military history."--ARBA "A must. Wagner has compiled probably the most complete data of the people who took part in what is arguably the West's most famous battle...excellent."--RoundUp Magazine "Impressed...adds a truly personal dimension to one of the most controversial events in Western history...will appeal to academic, as well as public libraries and will often find a home in circulating collections."--Against the Grain. The Battle of the Little Big Horn was the decisive engagement of the Great Sioux War of 1876-1877. In its second edition this biographical dictionary of all known participants--the 7th Cavalry, civilians and Indians--provides a brief description of the battle, as well as information on the various tribes, their customs and methods of fighting. Seven appendices cover the units soldiers were assigned to, uniforms and equipment of the cavalry, controversial listings of scouts and the number of Indians in the encampments, the location of camps on the way to the Big Horn and more. Updated biographies are provided for many European soldiers, along with an additional 5,060 names of Indians who were or could have been in the battle.
