They died with Custer : soldiers' bones from the Battle of the Little Bighorn by Douglas D Scott( )

7 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in English and held by 1,470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"More than a hundred years after the Battle of the Little Bighorn, its secrets continue to unfold. In this book, Douglas D. Scott, P. Willey, and Melissa A. Connor blend historic sources, archeological evidence, and physical data to present new revelations about the men who rode and died with Custer." "Through painstaking analysis of the skeletal remains, the authors construct composite biographies of the soldiers, identifying their true ages, heights, states of health, and how they died. A vast selection of illustrations, including photographs, battlefield maps, drawings, and graphs, enhance the discussion." "The authors also move beyond individual stories to consider our views regarding the appropriate treatment for the dead."--Jacket

Battlespace 1865 : archaeology of the landscapes, strategies, and tactics of the North Platte campaign, Nebraska by Douglas D Scott( )

7 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 745 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For a period of about one week in February 1865, as the Civil War was winding down and Plains Indian communities were reeling in the wake of the Sand Creek massacre, combat swept across the Nebraska panhandle, especially along the Platte River. The fighting that marked this event barely compares to the massive campaigns and terrible carnage taking place in the eastern states but it was a significant event at the opening of the ensuing Indian Wars. Operating on terrain they knew well, Cheyenne warriors and other Native forces encountered the US Cavalry who operated within a modern network of long-distance migration and pony express trails and military stations. The North Platte Campagin offers a good basis for the application of landscape approaches to conflict archaeology if only because of its scale. The fighting is both easily approached and fascinatingly encompassed. There were probably far fewer than 1000 fighters involved in those skirmishes, but before, after, and between them, they involved substantial movements of people and of equipment that was similar to the arms and gear in service to other Civil War era combatants. They also seem to have used approaches that were typical of America's western warfare. Like many modern conflicts of interest, the North Platte fights were between culturally different opponents. Archaeological consideration of battlefields such as Rush Creek and Mud Springs, bases, and landscapes associated with this fighting expose how the combat developed and how the opposing forces dealt with the challenges they encountered. Battlespace 1865 draws on techniques of battlefield archaeology, focusing on the concept of 'battlespace' and the recovery, distribution, and analysis of artifacts and weaponry, as well as historical accounts of the participants, LiDAR-informed terrain assessment, and consideration of the strategic thinking of the combatants. It applies landscape approach to the archaeological study of war and reveals an overlooked phase of the American Civil War and opening of the Indian Wars"--Back cover

Uncovering history : archaeological investigations at the Little Bighorn by Douglas D Scott( Book )

7 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Almost as soon as the last shot was fired in the Battle of the Little Bighorn, the battlefield became an archaeological site. For many years afterward, as fascination with the famed 1876 fight intensified, visitors to the area scavenged the many relics left behind. It took decades, however, before researchers began to tease information from the battle's debris--and the new field of battlefield archaeology began to emerge. In Uncovering History, renowned archaeologist Douglas D. Scott offers a comprehensive account of investigations at the Little Bighorn, from the earliest collecting efforts to early-twentieth-century findings. Artifacts found on a field of battle and removed without context or care are just relics, curiosities that arouse romantic imagination. When investigators recover these artifacts in a systematic manner, though, these items become a valuable source of clues for reconstructing battle events. Here Scott describes how detailed analysis of specific detritus at the Little Bighorn--such as cartridge cases, fragments of camping equipment and clothing, and skeletal remains--have allowed researchers to reconstruct and reinterpret the history of the conflict. In the process, he demonstrates how major advances in technology, such as metal detection and GPS, have expanded the capabilities of battlefield archaeologists to uncover new evidence and analyze it with greater accuracy. Through his broad survey of Little Bighorn archaeology across a span of 130 years, Scott expands our understanding of the battle, its protagonists, and the enduring legacy of the battlefield as a national memorial."--Publisher's website

Health of the Seventh Cavalry : a medical history( )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With its charismatic leader George Custer and its memorable encounters with Plains Indians, including the Battle of the Little Bighorn, the Seventh Cavalry serves as the iconic regiment in the post-Civil War United States Army. Voluminous written documentation as well as archaeological and osteological research suggest that the soldiers of the Seventh represented a cross section of the men who joined the army as a whole at the time. Here the authors examine the Seventh’s medical records to determine the health of the nineteenth-century U.S. Army, and the prevalence and treatment of the numerous conditions that plagued soldiers during the Indian Wars. Building on previous comparisons of archaeological evidence and medical records, Willey and Scott follow multiple lines of inquiry to assess the health of the Seventh, from its organization in 1866 to its 1884 station on the Northern Great Plains. Pairing general overviews of nineteenth- and twentieth-century health care with essays on malaria, injuries, post-traumatic stress disorder, and other specific ailments, Health of the Seventh Cavalry provides insights into the health, disease, and trauma that the regiment experienced over two decades. More than 100 tables, graphs, and maps track the troops’ illnesses and diseases by month, season, year, and location, as well as their stress periods, desertions, and deaths. A glossary of medical terms rounds out the volume
