Custer's Last Fight
Not available online
TitleCuster's Last Fight
AbstractShort notice of a drama to open at the Gilliss Theater featuring both General Custer and Buffalo Bill. This company carries forty people, a car load of special scenery, horses and dogs. In the company is a band of full-blooded Indians, cowboys and scouts.

The play itself is a faithful portrayal of life in the early West and the incidents leading up to Custer's fight with the Indians on the Little Big Horn. The world renowned government scout, "Buffalo Bill," is the leading character, and around him and General Custer, the author has written a romantic and thrilling story of love and war. The play opens at the home of Buffalo Bill, and the scenes change during the action of the Indian stronghold and finally, to the famous battleground.
NotesHal Reid's drama, "Custer's Last Fight," will be the next attraction at the Gilliss. Many books have been written on the subject but this is the first time it has ever been staged.
