The Cover

"Custer's Demand," by Charles Schreyvogel, reproduced through the courtesy of the Thomas Gilcrease Institute of American History and Art, Tulsa, Okla.

The painting depicts a meeting in December, 1868, between Custer and the Kiowa leaders, Lone Wolf and Satanta, at which Custer told them to bring their people into the reservation at Fort Cobb, in the Indian residency.
