The type of soldier Custer was...

Item # 668316

July 28, 1876

THE WHEELING INTELLIGENCER, West Virginia, July 28, 1876 

* Post George Armstrong Custer massacre

Page 2 has nearly half a column article: "The Sort of A Soldier That Custer Was" which is essentially a lengthy letter of congratulations signed by: G. A. Custer from April 9, 1865 to his soldiers of the 3rd Cavalry at Appomattox Court  House, the day of  Lee's surrender. It's a wonderful letter.
Four pages, large size, archival repair at the blank spine, nice condition. Folder size noted is for the issue folded in half.
