References[edit]

Only one reference... here's a fine project for someone who has a few of the better books on Gen. Custer. Jusdafax (talk) 09:04, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

Ok, I added one, anyone else? By the way, I see there is a bio of Mrs. Custer by Shirley A. Leckie called Elizabeth Bacon Custer and the Making of a Myth. Have not read it yet, but any serious student of her life would no doubt enjoy it. Jusdafax (talk) 23:13, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

Here's another reference source with a lot of material on Mrs. Custer: Touched by Fire: The Life, Death, and Afterlife of George Armstrong Custer by Louise Barnett. The author brings a lot up about her life I had not read before; hopefully I can add a bit more to this article. Jusdafax (talk) 15:41, 3 September 2009 (UTC)

Met in 1862?[edit]

In the article on Custer, it is mentioned that the two first met when she was 10 which would be in 1852 rather than 1862.--Jrm2007 (talk) 21:21, 21 December 2013 (UTC)
