    I thoroughly enjoyed the article about Custer in the Winter 2013 issue. I then went to my computer to pull up more images using the cite address at page 13. Pulled up the first page, but No success for the remainder.

    Also so very frustrating were the car sales ads that popped up so frequently.

    One last note — at US $12.99 your very fine mag is too expensive. And not that much is saved by subscription.
