A Man of Kent

The story of William Crisfield’s incredible journey from a small village in Kent, England, to his death at the Battle of the Little Big Horn  has been temporarily withdrawn pending its proposed publication in the Custer Association of Great Britain’s 2016 journal, The Crow’s Nest, due out late August/early September this year. It will be reinstated  shortly thereafter.  Watch this space. (Webmaster, 30 May 2016)
