A eulogy-like article on the Custer massacre...



Item # 668315

July 21, 1876

THE WHEELING DAILY INTELLIGENCER, West Virginia, July 21, 1876 

* re. Custer's Massacre
* Brigham Young - Mormons


Page 3 has a column headed: "Custar's Attack on the Sioux" which reads much like a eulogy.
Bits include: "on the banks of the Little Big Horn...sleep to-day the flower of the American army...Custar [sic] in his brave but disastrous charge..." with much more, taking over one-third of a column.
The ftpg. has: "Ann Eliza vs. Brigham" (misspelling here) concerning a woman who claimed to be Brigham Young's wife, but he said not his legal wife. Also: "Death of Sitting Bull Confirmed--Other Notable Chiefs Also Killed", which was a false report.
Four pages, nice condition.
