by Carl F. Day

First edition. Blue cloth, gold stamping on spine, 301 pp., frontis., [portrait], acknowledgement, introduction, illustrated, maps, bibliography, index. Thomas Ward Custer was the younger brother of George Armstrong Custer. Tom Custer was a hero in his own right as he was the first man in our history to receive two Medals of Honor for heroism on the battlefield. When once asked what he thought of his brother Tom, George Armstrong Custer replied without hesitation, "If you want to know what I think of him, all I can say is, Tom ought to be the General and I the Captain." This is the first book to document his life. As new, in dust jacket.
