This is George Custer , or the ?Boy General?, as the men in the ranks knew him - confident, swaggering, dressed in a tailored uniform. On June 29, 1863, Custer was promoted from Captain to Brigadier General, following a daring charge at the battle of Aldie. Custer led his unit in ferocious fighting at Gettysburg, which set their standard for the remainder of their service. Recklessly brave and fearless under fire, Custer had eleven horses shot from under him during the course of the war, while only once being wounded. Following the war he survived a court martial in 1867 before riding to immortality at the Little Big Horn in 1876.
