Anniversary: Little Big Horn.

A buddy gave me a copy of this book a couple of weeks ago: George Custer: An American embarrassment.
I finished it in insomnia time and found it to be one of the better treatments, although I have always been, and will always be, a Benteen man. I agree with the old American Indian Movement bumper sticker: "Custer Had It Coming."

Yes he did have it coming. What a supreme ass. Pity the poor SOBs who had to serve under him.

Kinda reminds me of that line about getting a "bigger boat", in Jaws. Custer's reply would has been that a dingy is faster and more manoeuvrable...

I went mountain biking at Fort Custer Recreational Area near the actual Fort Custer.

I always remember to bring my machine guns to a fight, unless I want to end up like Custer did.
