Here’s a new literary treasure for all fans of the frontier wars and military posts. Fort Abraham Lincoln is examined at length here, from daily food menus to the color of the suspenders worn by the cavalry. Every building still standing on this historic site in North Dakota (and even some that aren’t) are described and generously illustrated with original drawings and modern photographs. This location was also the last command of the glamorized George Custer, and he and the Little Bighorn Battlefield are included. The fort continues to be involved in a program of historical discovery and reconstruction, and the author covers the progress of this enterprise in detail. Many of us have visited this site, but this book tells more about what we have seen than any park guide ever could.
