On a hot summer day in 1876, George A. Custer led the 7th Cavalry Regiment to The Little Big Horn.  To this day, scholars are grappling with some of the facts of this historic battle.  In case you missed the two hour History Channel special presentation, “Custer’s Last Man”, we have provided you with the links which feature John Reznikoff as a hand writing expert examining the pivotal evidence which the program was is based (appearing in part 2).  No doubt scholars will continue to debate this subject.  We have highlighted a few items we current have relating to Custer.
