PATREON PREVIEW- Gettysburg Ties to the Battle of the Little Bighorn- with Jim Hessler

Addressing Gettysburg Podcast

Jim Hessler and I love the Battle of the Little Bighorn. Sometimes, we need a palate-cleanser from all this Gettysburg-stuff and, so, I invited Jim on to talk about Gettysburg connections to the Battle of the Little Bighorn. Several officers who served with the 7th Cavalry were veterans of the Battle of Gettysburg, most famously, of course, was General Custer, but another name that many know is that of Myles Keogh, who served on Buford's staff here at Gettysburg. There are others too. You'll just have to watch.    Become a Patron by clicking here!

Ask A Gettysburg Guide #30- Custer and East Cavalry Field with LBG Jim Hessler

Addressing Gettysburg Podcast

Jim Hessler's done many a thing: he's authored many books; he hosts the Battle of Gettysburg Podcast; he's a Licensed Battlefield Guide and, most importantly, he's a Custer enthusiast. And, so, we invited him on to talk about a rarely visited part of Gettysburg National Military Park-- East Cavalry Field-- and, more specifically, the newly-minted Brigadier General George Armstrong Custer.  Jim provides us with a background of the man and the battle that put him on the map in the national consciousness and then takes questions from our Patreon patrons.  Support The Show By: Getting a book!
