The feature article of this month's Wild West Magazine is 10 Myths About the Battle of the Little Bighorn! Warhol's painting of Custer is on the cover. Without going into details, here are the 10 myths that Gregory Michno tackles:
1. Custer and all his men were killed. 2. Custer disobeyed his orders. 3. Custer did not listen to his scouts. 4. The Indian village was immense. 5. Sitting Bull set up an ambush. 6. Custer's tactics were faulty. 7. Custer was killed at the river. 8. Crazy Horse's ride to the north. 9. There was no last stand. 10. 28 soldiers died in deep ravine.
Also included, is an article called: "Giovanni Martini: The Message Got Through. The Italian-born trumpeter has been a Little Bighorn scapegoat" by John Koster. And, "Sitting Bull Rests, But Is He at Peace? The debate continues over where his bones belong" by Bill Markley.
