Have Custer appear at your function!
Rick offers several options and provides different presentations tailored to your event. Rick can appear in Civil War uniform for that focus, or in Plains Wars uniform for a broader and more comprehensive presentation.
Schools - Attention Educators! Rick is a former substitute teacher and has appeared at countless school functions ranging from school-wide Civil War days to single classroom presentations. Rick can focus presentations to specific aspects of the Civil War such as slavery, states rights or modern effects from the war. Rick can enhance Native American studies by presenting the latest information on U.S. Government Indian policies during the 1800's and it's current effects on Native American culture.
Historical/Civic Organizations - Need a speaker for your upcoming meetings or have a weekend living history event? General Custer is always a good draw. Meeting presentations can be tailored at your discretion. Rick can discuss the Civil War in general, Civil War cavalry or make it Custer-specific. He can also appear in later uniform and presnt fascinating programs covering Custer's career during the Plains War.
For weekend living history events - Rick sets up Field Headquarters complete with tent, period tack display and interacts with guests. Horses are optional. With a mounted presentation, Rick sets up a basic target course and demonstrates target shooting while riding and use of saber.
Battle Reenactments - Rick has considerable battlefield experience from his days as a trooper to commanding and coordinating cavalry scenarios. Rick can work within your scenarios as an apparent commander under your event commanders, to exercising actual command on the field. Reenactment appearances would also include speaking presentations.
Rick's schedule is posted on this site, and he also has some flexibility with short notice depending on the type of event and distance. Contact him as far ahead of your event as possible.
