large oblong quarto, 206pp. Vol. 9 in the Montana and the West Series. The life and times of Myles Keogh, who commanded Company I at the Battle of the Little Big Horn and consequently died there with Custer, is explored in great detail by an impressive array of scholars who met in Los Angeles on July 28 – 29, 1990 to participate in a Myles Keogh symposium sponsored by the Gene Autry Western Heritage Museum. The symposium, led by Dr. John Langellier, featured papers presented by the leading Keogh researchers and writers and are presented in this comprehensive anthology. Introduced by the late Dr. Lawrence Frost, the volume includes monographs by Dr. Elizabeth Lawrence, Kurt Cox, John Manion, Brian Pohanka, Dr. Kevin Mulroy, the late Lenora Snedeker, Richard Fox, Francis Taunton, Rev. Vincent Heier and Langellier. Keogh’s colorful career is thoroughly documented from his early years in Ireland and Italy, the American Civil War, his romances, enlistment in the Seventh Cavalry, the Little Big Horn and his burial and reburial, his horse Comanche, recent archeology at the Keogh position on the Custer Battlefield, along with perceptive analyses of the Irish and the U.S. Army and a checklist of Keogh in fiction, poetry and film are all included in this notable collection of essays on the life of Capt. Myles Keogh. Carefully compiled and edited by the well-respected military historian Dr. John Langellier, this anthology includes a foreword by the late Dr. Lawrence Frost and an afterword by Myles’ great-grandnephew Gary Keogh, who makes his home in Dublin. This handsome edition features 65 historical photos, many previously unpublished, while most of the text comes from letters, diaries and other primary sources not used before. Laid in is the publisher's "Keepsake" reproduction of the Keogh photograph taken by E. E. Henry, photographer. As new, at published price. light blue cloth stamped in gilt on front cover and spine, in pictorial dust jacket. N° de réf. du libraire 24488
