Summary
California Joe knew his way around the West so well that Custer made him chief of scouts in the Washita Campaign--and demoted him when he got roaring drunk. Custer was fascinated by this colorful character who went to California in the gold rush and cronied with Kit Carson and Buffalo Bill. But even though California Joe was famous in his day as an Indian fighter and army scout, his past and his real name (Moses E. Milner) were a mystery to nearly everyone when he was murdered in 1876. This biography not only sets the record straight on California Joe but also reconstructs the Battle of the Little Big Horn from firsthand interviews with survivors and lists the soldiers who were killed with Custer.
