The incredible story of 7th cavalry trooper Frank Finkel, who for fear of being branded as a deserter, waited 44 years to tell his story of what happened once the action started and Custer's attack began. In the years after the Battle of the Little Bighorn, 70 so-called "lone survivors" had come forward, only to have their stories discounted as lies. Thanks to the work of various historians, and documents that support their research, Finkel's story has been proven true. The Battle of the Little Bighorn was a huge victory for the tribes united under the Sioux, but the beginning of the end for the American Indian's way of life as a new civilization was sweeping westward in America.
