General Custer is one of the most written about people in American history. Author Sandy Barnard has spent many years researching his life, the US Army in the Plains Indian wars, and worked with the National Park Service on a number of projects about this history. He recently wrote a new biography and Dr. Jones was pleased to have this conversation about Custer's controversial life and what it means to America and the Great Plains.
