"Only Custer himself could have given a complete report of Custer's last stand, only those who fought with him could have described it. But all died on the field of battle."
--The Custer Story: the Life and Intimate Letters of General George A. Custer and His Wife, Elizabeth
A bronze statue stands on the site of George Armstrong Custer's birthplace. Only the foundation of the house remains at this roadside park and picnic area. Visitors at the exhibit pavilion may read about Custer's life and the spirited qualities of the young soldier whose "Last Stand" has made his name a household word. Custer, born in 1839, became famous as a daring cavalryman during the Civil War.
