From the time of her husband's death at the Battle of the Little Bighorn until her own death fifty-seven years later, at the age of ninety, Mrs. George Armstrong Custer devoted herself to defending or embellishing her husband's reputation. 

This account , the second in Elizabeth's trilogy of her life with the General, focuses on the period immediately following the Civil War, when the Custers were stationed in Louisiana, Texas, and Kansas. Throughout , she provided detailed descriptions of an army officer's home life on the frontier during this major period of Indian unrest.
