We’re excited to announce the release of The Fights on the Little Horn: Unveiling the Mysteries of Custer’s Last Stand.
This groundbreaking book is the culmination of 50 years of research into the true story of the Battle of Little Bighorn. With the aid of previously unknown primary sources, the author, Gordon Harper, spent almost two-thirds of his life researching evidence and reports from each side of the battlefield.
Harper passed away in 2009, leaving behind 2000 pages of reports, letters, and interviews as well as nearly two million words of original research. With help from his daughter Tori and historians Gordon Richard and Monte Akers, Harper’s life work and research is now available for the general public.
In the foreword to this book, Tori Harper writes,
What you have in your hands, then, is what Gordon Harper believed that the available, primary sources reveal as what really happened; unadorned with speculation and theories from other experts, but filtered through the mind and knowledge of a man who literally devoted half a century to studying what occurred on one particular day in history.
Due to the immense amount of research, bibliographies, and appendices that make up Gordon Harper’s work, an extended eBook companion guide will be released in the following weeks.
