Synopsis

Discover one of Americas most important 19th century forts. Initially constructed for infantry troops in the Dakota Territory, Fort Abraham Lincoln was changed to house both infantry and cavalry troops to protect construction crews building the Northern Pacific Railroad. The first commanding officer was Civil War hero Major General George Armstrong Custer, with his famous 7th Cavalry. Custer was in command of Fort Lincoln at the time of his fateful expedition to the Little Big Horn. This book describes everyday life for the soldiers, including their food, entertainment, and weapons. Every building is described in detail and shown 200 blueprints, historic and recent photographs are included. Historians will relish this comprehensive new presentation.

A retired police officer, Lee Chambers was inducted into Who's Who in American Law Enforcement and enjoys extreme sports. He was adopted into a band of Chippewa Indians and named Maa Ingen Ningens (Wolf Eyes), gaining the most honored respect an Indian tribe can give a white man. He and his brother helped conduct archeological excavations at Fort Lincoln, where they located four rifle pits.
