Who Killed Custer?
The Eye-witness Answer
by Bruce Brown
Who Killed Custer -- The Eye-witness Answer by Bruce Brown is a revolutionary new look at the Battle of the Little Bighorn based on Astonisher.com's 100 Voices, the largest and most complete collection of eye-witness accounts of the Battle of the Little Bighorn anywhere, in any form.
When it first appeared on the Web in 2007, Who Killed Custer -- The Eye-witness Answer set a lot of conventional Little Bighorn thinking on its ear, simply by citing the eye-witness record of the battle.
Bruce Brown was the first American historian to take a stand against the ossified and largey incoherent American telling of the story of the Battle of the Little Bighorn.
Take the circumstances of George A. Custer's death. Turns out the identity of Custer's killer has been known all along, if you listened to Little Bighorn survivors White Cow Bull and Pretty Shield and Curley and Peter Thompson and George Glenn and Jacob Adams, whose stories agree and mesh to make sense of the central mystery of the battle.
Who Killed Custer -- The Eye-witness Answer also sheds a bright new light on other Little Bighorn mysteries, such as what happened to Curley, what happened to Mitch Bouyer's body, why Custer abandoned his attack at Medicine Tail Coulee in the middle of the river, why Custer's men filed two signal volleys at the very outset of the battle, what happened during the so-called "twenty minute pause," etc. The answers are all in the eye-witness record!
Who Killed Custer -- The Eye-witness Answer also contains some of the best -- and most revealing -- maps ever made of the action at the Battle of the Little Bighorn, like the 3D satellite projection map above, "Curley at the Little Bighorn."
Finally, Bruce Brown's Who Killed Custer and 100 Voices also contains the only discussion of the eye-witness record and the Custer attempted rape site anywhere, in any language.
