    ‘Garry Owen’ always reminds me of George Custer, one of our youngest generals and a hero of the Civil War. Unlike my high school revisionist history teacher, I do not believe Custer was a fool that “had it coming.”

    Memories of our heroes fade as time marches by. Did you know Custer’s brother Tom was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor (twice) during the Civil War?
