Rosebud, June 17, 1876; Prelude to the Little Bighorn

Norman: University of Oklahoma Press, 2019. 1st edition. Hardcover. Signed by author. The Battle of the Rosebud may well be the largest Indian battle ever fought in the American West. The monumental clash on June 17, 1876, along Rosebud Creek in southeastern Montana pitted George Crook and his Shoshone and Crow allies against Sioux and Northern Cheyenne under Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse. It set the stage for the battle that occurred eight days later when, just twenty-five miles away, George Armstrong Custer blundered into the very same village that had outmatched Crook. Hedren presents the definitive account of this critical battle, from its antecedents in the Sioux campaign to its historic consequences. New. Item #12840
