Custer's Academy Years at West Point

2018 - a New beginning

I announce that beginning this year, I am scaling back the number of dates where I will appear as Custer. It is partly owing to the hostile atmosphere that now pervades our country regarding historical figures - partly to a frightening decline in interest in the history of the United States.

I have been elected to an NCO position with the 5th Ohio Light Artillery and shall be devoting much of my time in that direction. I will continue to accept dates as Custer but availability may be limited.

I exhort everyone to continue to teach new generations about the history of America. History is not to be shoved under the carpet or discarded as something that tastes bad. We should not judge people of previous centuries by our standards of today.

"Those who forget the past, are condemned to repeat it."
