GEORGE ARMSTRONG CUSTER (1839 –1876) was a United States Army officer and cavalry commander in the American Civil War and the American Indian Wars. Custer was also present at General Robert E. Lee's surrender to General Ulysses S. Grant on April 9, 1865. A highly effective cavalry commander, Custer was dispatched to the west in 1867 to fight in the American Indian Wars. On June 25, 1876, while leading the 7th Cavalry Regiment at the Battle of the Little Bighorn in Montana Territory against a coalition of Native American tribes, he and all of his regiment—which included two of his brothers—were killed. The battle is popularly known in American history and popular folklore as "Custer's Last Stand."A handsome and impressive addition to the den or office of the Civil War buff, Old West aficionado or autograph collector. An exceptional investment opportunity, and a truly rare and remarkable find.
