Touched by Fire: The Life, Death, and Mythic Afterlife of George Armstrong Custer - Paperback

ISBN: 0803262663

[SR: 1471921], Paperback, [EAN: 9780803262669], Bison Books, Bison Books, Book, [PU: Bison Books], Bison Books, For more than a century, Americans have been captivated by the legend of General George Armstrong Custer. But the various truths of Custer’s life and last stand prove elusive. Why are we so taken with the myth and the so-called mystery behind the man?In a field teeming with highly partisan and wildly speculative treatments of Custer, Louise Barnett enters with a volume widely acclaimed by both military and cultural historians as the most balanced account of his life and legend. Custer's life spans two great eras of American history, and Barnett's commanding work pushes beyond the existing literature to a comprehensive view of this controversial figure.Touched By Fire, Louise Barnett reexamines the Custer story and finds that the answer may lie in racism and national pride. Her belief is that we still can't accept the fact that a band of Indians could bring down the white troops of a powerful nation. , 2395, United States, 9681303011, American Revolution, 465246, Civil War, 9681307011, US Presidents, 2376, Historical, 2, Biographies & Memoirs, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 465246, American Civil War, 465244, Military, 2396, Leaders & Notable People, 2, Biographies & Memoirs, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 4853, United States, 4867, African Americans, 4868, Civil War, 4869, Colonial Period, 6343225011, Immigrants, 4871, Revolution & Founding, 14278871, State & Local, 4808, Americas, 9, History, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books

ID: 6093866

The source of our endless fascination with the legend of General Custer--the flamboyant general and brilliant tactician who led his troops into a bloody massacre--is perhaps as interesting as the story of the man himself. Why, more than 100 years later, are we still drawn to the story of Little Bighorn? In Touched By Fire, Louise Barnett reexamines the Custer story and finds that the answer may lie in racism and national pride. Her belief is that we still can't accept the fact that a band of Indians could bring down the white troops of a powerful nation. 19th century,americas,biographical,biographies,biographies and history,biography and history,historical,history,leaders and notable people,military Biographies, Bison Books
