Mr. Marshall talked about his book, The Day the World Ended at Little Bighorn: A Lakota History, published by Viking. Mr. Marshall disputed the popular history of the Battle at Little Bighorn which describes General Custer as suffering from poor planning and underestimating the number of Lakota. He revisited the battle that the Lakota called the Greasy Grass Fight, saying that General Custer and his men were defeated by a highly skilled and better trained army. He placed the battle within the greater context of American Westward expansion and Native American history. After his presentation the author responded to audience members' questions.
