T. J. Stiles - Custer's Trials: A Life on the Frontier of a New America

Monday, November 2, 2015 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Stiles won multiple awards for his debut biography on Jesse James. With his next work, The First Tycoon, a life of Cornelius Vanderbilt, he earned both the Pulitzer and the National Book Award. Now, in his eagerly awaited third book, Stiles reveals new facets of General George Armstrong Custer. Looking at Custer’s experience both as a public figure and as the husband of a highly educated woman, Stiles presents a complex man whose strengths and weaknesses often conflicted, and who was both iconic of the Wild West of his times and at odds with the larger socio-cultural changes going on around him.
