General George Custer

On December 5, 1839, General George Custer was born in New Rumly, Ohio. Although he developed a strong reputation during the American Civil War, much of his achievements have been overshadowed by this disastrous final battle in 1876. At the Battle of Little Bighorn, Custer led 210 of his men into battle against a coalition of Native American tribes. He and all of his men lost their lives in what became known as “Custer’s Last Stand.”
