Author Jeff Barnes will present the discussion based on his latest book called "The Great Plains Guide to Custer: 85 Forts, Fights and Other Sites."

The book covers many of the sites that played a significant role in Custer's time in the Dakotas.

Jay Smith is the museum director for the South Dakota State Historical Society. He says Custer left a significant footprint in the history of South Dakota. Smith says Barnes' program will cover Custer's earlier Dakota experiences and his final battle at the Little Big Horn.

The discussion is scheduled for 2 p.m.
