The Court-Martial of George Armstrong Custer synopsis

What if General George Armstrong Custer (James Olson) lived to tell about the Battle of the Little Bighorn? This film answers that question by depicting a trial for the military officer in which the prosecuting lawyer (Ken Howard) attempts to hold Custer accountable for the deaths of his men during the massacre. Custer's attorney (Brian Keith), however, counters by painting a more favorable picture of the accused leader, both during the conflict and in general.
