Elizabeth Clift Custer (née Bacon; April 8, 1842 – April 4, 1933) was an American author and public speaker, and the wife of Brevet Major General George Armstrong Custer, United States Army.

In Following the Guidon, she covers that period when Custer’s career was again in ascendancy. Custer was recalled to duty from "exile," after being court-martialed, to help with the growing Indian wars. The first major engagement, recounted here, is the Battle of the Washita. Few figures in American history are as arresting as George Armstrong Custer, America’s Hostspur. His career ranged back and forth from depths of disgrace to heights of glory.

Following the Guidon by Elizabeth Libbie Custer. Libbie Custer is probably best known as the widow of George Custer, the impetuous Army fellow who led the 7th Cavalry to slaughter at the hands of Crazy Horse and Sitting Bull on the Little Bighorn river in Montana in late June of 1876. But to describe Libbie as simply a widow of a famous soldier is like describing Babe Ruth as simply a baseball player. Libbie was intelligent, smart, pretty, well-educated, well groomed in Victorian social graces, very observant, quite bold, assertive, savvy and a very, very talented writer.
Custer drew on living records of an intense present. It was during this period that Custer's fame as an Indian fighter was born in the general public's mind. His destruction of the Cheyenne and their allies in Custer's attack and destruction of one of their main village in the "Battle of the Washita" is discussed as well as its aftermath in influencing Indian life and their attitude towards the ever encroaching White settlers.
