Overview

Walter M. Camp (1867–1925) was an indefatigable collector of Custeriana who set himself the intimidating task of interviewing every living survivor of the battle at the Little Bighorn. Unfortunately, with Camp’s death this information was scattered. This volume gathers his most important material, much of which was not previously available.

Custer and Company presents information on Sergeant John Henley, veteran trooper of the Seventh Cavalry, and a number of other Seventh Cavalrymen and frontiersmen, including interpreter Sam Bruguier; Camp’s research on various unsettled questions of the Little Bighorn fight; interviews with several surviving Indians and famed scout Luther North; and extensive information on the death of Crazy Horse.

Camp’s investigations illuminate several important questions that have dogged Custer research for generations.
