New York: Century Co., 1892. Reprint. Paperback. One of the most important and classic articles about Custer's last fight. Godfrey's article has frequently been reprinted, but this copy consists of the loose pages stapled together from a copy of the Century magazine. It is NOT a full copy of the magazine. The full original was published in The Century Illustrated Monthly Magazine, January 1892, Vol. XLIII, No. 3 (p. 358).
According to bibliographer Michael O'Keefe, "This is Godfrey's documentation of the Battle of Little Big Horn, originally prepared as a speech before West Point in 1879, then supplemented by Godfrey's hearing Indian versions of the fight in 1886." O'Keefe calls it, "one of the best accounts because it was written by an educated participant who corresponded frequently with other battle participants." This was published 15 1/2 years after the battle, by which time Godfrey himself had lost much respect for Major Reno's behavior at Little Big Horn. Collectible - Good. Item #13910
