Summary
This Second edition includes photographs from both the Ohio and Washington State branches of Frank Finkel's family and from the public domain which offer camera portraits of August Finckle, second sergeant of C Company, 7th Cavalry, reportedly killed at Custer's Last Stand and of purported Custer Survivor Frank Finkel and his father and mother. Research published after the original CUSTER SURVIVOR also contests the idea that any reliable witness saw Sergeant Finckle's body at the Little Bighorn. It has been recorded in official government records that there were no survivors of the five companies of the Seventh Cavalry who were with General George Armstrong Custer at the battle at the Little Big Horn. Recently, uncovered records and forensic handwriting evidence, the latter verified by forensic handwriting experts, reveal that one trooper, a sergeant in C Company of the Seventh Cavalry, actually escaped the onslaught of Sioux and Cheyenne. The author has tracked the man and his activity during the battle and has brought them together in Custer Survivor. Custer Survivor, through documented accounts recreates the scene from the Sioux and Cheyenne encampment the night before the battle through the action the following day, the remarkable escape of the wounded survivor, the aftermath of the battle and his fascinating life thereafter. Professor Louise Barnett, a fellow of the Rutgers Center for Historical Analysis, Rutgers University, writes the Introduction
