Cover Photograph: "Frederic Francis Gerard Grave Marker, St. Joseph, Minnesota" by Paul L. Hedron • Little Big Horn Associates Newsletter, Vol. VI, No. 11, November 1972.

Photograph: "Fred Girard" Research Review, Vol. XII, No. 1978-6, June 1978.

Article: "Girard Knoll Considered" by W. Donald Horn Horn examines the evidence as to the exact location where interpreter Girard yelled to Custer that he had spotted the Indians and they were fleeing. This was the final spark that ignited Custer's attack of the Indian encampment. Research Review: The Journal of the Little Big Horn Associates, Vol. 14, No. 2, Summer 2000.

Article: "Fred Girard: A Real Custer Scout" Girard's premature death in 1925 deprived Walter M. Camp of the opportunity to write Girard's definitive account of the Little Big Horn. A 1914 newspaper article provides a glimpse into what he might have said. Greasy Grass, Journal of the Custer Battlefield Historical & Museum Association, Vol. 17, May 2001.
