    Thumbs up General Custer

    I found this piece of trivia about Gen. Custer
    This is the town where I live.

    Tradition says that the people of Front Royal
    danced in the streets when Custer died.

    Here's the link
    I came in to the world with nothing. I still have most of it.

    Nice letter.

    Interesting history.
    Mankind have a great aversion to intellectual labor; but even supposing knowledge to be easily attainable, more people would be content to be ignorant than would take even a little trouble to acquire it.

    He wasn't scalped. Wonder what the natives thought of him and what did they do?

    If you're interested, there's a good book about this topic and the plight of the Native American titled " Bury my heart at Wounded Knee." I think the authors name is Dee Brown.
