Elizabeth Custer wrote Tenting on the Plains, or General .
Elizabeth Custer wrote Tenting on the Plains, or General Custer in Kansas and Texas during the 1880s. Were it not for Elizabeth Bacon Custer writing books of her late husband's war service, I wonder whether any of us would ever have learned that even the freed women slaves showed their gratitude by trying to help earn their freedom under the most harrowing conditions. Oh, and it also enjoyed reading how Elza once mistook Buffalo Bill Cody, in Kansas, for Geo. Armstrong Custer. Reading Tenting on the Plains, I honestly feel I am traveling back in time to listen to Libbie speak as we view what seems to be a silent, true-to-life video of late-1860s Kansas and Texas.

From the time of her husband’s death at the Battle of the Little Big Horn until her own death fifty-seven years later, at the age of ninety, Mrs. George Armstrong Custer devoted herself to defending or embellishing her husband’s reputation.
This account, the second in Elizabeth’s trilogy of her life with the General, focuses on the period immediately following the Civil War, when the Custers were stationed in Louisiana, Texas, and Kansas. She portrays the aftermath of the Civil War in Texas and life in Kansas while her husband took part in General Winfield Hancock’s 1867 expedition against the Indians between the Arkansas and Platte rivers. Throughout, she provides detailed descriptions of an army officer’s home life on the frontier during this major period of Indian unrest.
