The truth about the President's wife has for years been hidden under a mountain of myth built up largely by Lincoln's biographer and law partner, William H. Herndon.

I, Elizabeth; a biography of the girl who married General George Armstrong Custer of "Custer's last stand." by Ruth Painter Randall( Book )

3 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Life in the U.S. Army in wartime is hard enough for the men; for a woman it is unthinkable. Or so pronounced Elizabeth Bacon's father when he forbade her to see or write to George Armstrong Custer. What was a young woman of spirit to do in such a situation? As Libbie wrote, she 'did not promise never to see him again.' And what was a brave and reckless soldier to do, having fallen in love at first sight? For one thing, while becoming the youngest general in the Union Army, he would play upon Libbie's father's interest in military matters. Then by 'Custer's luck' he was wounded just enough to be furloughed home, where Libbie dwelt. So eventually Libbie became an army wife and departed from staid Michigan 'society' to travel, first to New York and Washington, then on to the South and West ... This is a true account by the distinguished biographer of Mary Lincoln, Varina Davis, and Jessie Frémont. Libbie Custer was an author herself, and Mrs. Randall has used her own narrative of what happened to her and 'Autie' Custer. Their lives were so adventurous and dramatic that the true story seems often more exciting than fiction."--Dust jacket
