New Book in New jacket. 1st Edition, 103 Pages. The dustwrapper benefits from an additional clear archival wrapper for protection. The end of the Civil War brought on a new wave of westward expansion and government attention turned once again to the ''Indian problem'' as railroads were extended across the plains and toward the Rocky Mountains. The newly formed 7th Regiment of Cavalry and the ''boy general, '' Brevet Major General George Armstrong Custer, were ordered west to join the Hancock Expedition of 1867. The troopers were armed with Spencer carbines, the first repeating shoulder arms adopted by the U.S. Army and ones that won acclaim during the War. In fact, Custer's outstanding success at Gettysburg was in part due to the seven-shot repeating Spencers used by his 5th and 6th Regiments of Michigan Cavalry against J.E.B. Stuart.
