Author Sandy Barnard will be at Barnes & Noble today to talk about his book, "Where Custer Fell: Photographs of the Little Bighorn Battlefield Then and Now."
Barnard collaborated with James S. Brust and Brian C. Pohanka on the work. They searched for documents and photos, made repeated trips to the battlefield and poured through many sources to develop the book.
Chapters start with descriptions of an episode in the battle, and historical photos illustrate the narratives. In some cases, modern photos of the same sites on the battlefield are shown alongside the historical ones.
The book has detailed maps and photos of battle participants and the early photographers who sought to tell their stories.
Barnard's talk and signing are at 2 p.m.
