      George Custer summary: George Armstrong Custer was a United States Army officer who, after finishing last in his class at West Point, was still called to serve in the Union army at the start of the The Civil serving in the American Civil War, he then served in the Indian Wars, meeting his end at the battle of Little Bighorn.   [Sorry if you're expecting something new. I moved this from the Quotations area after figuring out that was the wrong place for it.] Let me preface this long passage that I'm going to post here with the statement that I have heard many complaints about Custer, and I consider his massacre of the 7th Cavalry at Little Big Horn totally unnecessary, but I'm sure he had his good points.

      “T. J. Stiles has written a marvel of a book—the best life of Custer right up to the moment he marched the 7th Cavalry out of Fort Abraham Lincoln while the band played ‘The Girl I Left Behind,’ on their way to whip the Indians.” —Thomas Powers, author of The Killing of Crazy Horse.

      Personal Recollections of a Cavalryman with Custer’s Michigan Cavalry Brigade in the Civil War has been hailed as one of the richest, most reliable accounts of Union cavalry operations in the Eastern theater of the Civil War, ranging from the raid on Richmond to Appomattox. Kidd provides enriching details about encounters with JEB Stuart’s Released on: Febru Booknotes: Custer's Gray Rival General Rufus Barringer biographer Sheridan Barringer's new book Custer's Gray Rival: The Life of Confederate Major General Thomas Lafayette Rosser is "the first serious biography of this important officer." Though it's likely that few cavalry aficionados would rank Rosser among the best generals the war.
