Hi Guys Hope you are all in the best of health and in good spirits. I have not been on the LBHA for a few weeks now - have had a birth (my grandchild) and a bereavement (my brothers father in law) in the family. I managed to buy Archaeological Perspectives on the Battle of LBH and I found it, despite the jargon, quite accessible. I have ordered With Custer in 76 which I believe utilizes Camps voluminous notes and my next purchase is going to be Custer and Company. On the run-up to Christmas I intend to treat myself even further by getting Hardorffs Indian Views...., Hokahey...., Lakota,,,, and Cheyenne.... - all First Nation accounts. Also Arikara Narratives.... I was going to buy Grahams' The Reno Court of Inquiry, but I am not certain how much he has edited it. I have downloaded the transcript off of the Library of Congress website together with Exhibits and I think that this would be the most accurate copy of the proceedings transcript. However, I have heard that there is an edition that takes its text from the Chicago Times or Tribune account of the court and I would like to know who has edited it and any other info you guys can supply. Sorry for waffling on so much and glad to be back. Hokahey!!!
ps Any thoughts or comments on the above would be most welcome.

This review is from: The Original Handwritten Transcript of: the Reno Court of Inquiry (CD-ROM) These are the original transcript pages from the Reno Court of Inquiry taken down at the time. There are problems the reader has to overcome though. First, some are hard to read. This is not the editor's fault. Standard stuff for photo copies of 1800 documents. Second, they are written in more than one person's hand writing and some are harder to read than others. The RCOI is available in book form edited by Ron Nichols (the best version available)but die hard researchers will probably want this little gem for nothing else than to stick on their shelves between Camp and Graham.

If it walks like a duck, sounds like a duck, and looks like a duck ~ it is probably a goose.
Thanks for that herosrest. I seem to have heard that there was some controversy over the official transcript ant that taken by the newspaper reporters and I will follow this up. However, as you can see I am going to really treat myself this festive season and I will probably buy the cd-rom. Once again thank you for your comments.
