Where Native America meets pop culture
Damn lawyers. ;)
Writerfella here -- writerfella will wager that the Hon. Herr Cornut has nothing on his 'official' Custer website about GENERAL Custer being mistakenly breveted to that militia rank during the Civil War. Custer had ridden a horse to death and was to be fined and reprimanded. Another man in Custer's unit was to be promoted to Brigadier. The orders got crossed; Custer was promoted and the other man fined. Talk about calumny! And then in 1876, Col. Custer intended that a victory against the Sioux possibly would get his name entered in nomination for US President at a political convention soon to be held that year. But he chose Little Big Horn as the site of his attacks and, as we all know, it was a master stroke of Sioux strategy to use his own tactics against him. Megalomania many times is its own worst enemy.All BestRuss Bates'writerfella'
There's nothing negative on Cornut's Custer biography page (http://membres.lycos.fr/custerenglish/david2/intro.htm) except this:In arrest and suspended from pay and rank to September 25, 1868.
