Custer is supposedly buried in the West Point cemetery. However, no one is certain what remains were eventually recovered from that remote battlefield out west.

The battle fascinated both my wife and I. In fact, the very first trip we ever took was driving out west to visit the battlefield. I never quite understood how it developed, despite reading numerous books about it and studying it at West Point and as an Army officer.

The minute I stepped out of the car and saw the terrain I realized how the actual battle played out.

Of more importance though, is what events led to the battle taking place? Who was Custer?
