A DASHING GENERAL CUSTER
RARE CIVIL WAR CONTENT
FROM GENERAL CUSTER - 1862
Make no mistake, this is a major historical piece. It deserves careful Study. — When all is said on both sides, George Armstrong Custer’s Military Philosophy seemed to equal this: To be imminently successful on a field of battle; pitch in against any odds and then extricate oneself; as well as your troops, if the going gets rough. At Little Big Horn; not even Custer could save himself.
For This Truly Was:
“Custer’s Last Stand”.
