I'm Zak, I'm 25 and currently a full time student and junior at UW La Crosse. Pol sci major and soc minor. I was a history minor but couldn't the classes needed before graduating so I switched to soc. I have always been interested in the subject of LBH. Son of the Morning Star (film) came out when I was in elementary school and I read the book in Junior high or high School, but it's been a while and I need to read it again and others. I wish I could delve into more research and provide quotes, but most of my comments or mostly questions rather, come in between breaks in homework or when I can't sleep, as you'll notice some of my stuff says 4am. I'm very glad to see in depth work and new revelations about the battle and the history of the people, not many people I know would be able to tell who won the battle let alone debate the details and theories found here, so I'm am grateful to have stumbled on this group and appreciate your replies to my questions. Thanks.
Hi, Zak--boy, can we recommend a reading list! I started this when I was about 10, but there was a very long gap where I was completely off the subject. Now I find that I have so much catch-up reading to do that I will probably never finish it! Of course, everybody has their own favorite books and points of view.
Welcome aboard Zac. Its nice to have you join us. Feel free to post any questions or give any opinions. I am sure you will get a complete range of views on nearly any issue you choose to bring up relating to LBH, Custer or the Indians.
