I have purchased three new books about General Custer or one of his regiments in the last two months. I already had 6 books about this subject. There seems to be some people who have a dislike for General Custer. He seemed to have performed fairly well during the Civil War. Custer was not perfect, but what officer was? General Custer is considered a major hero of the Civil War here in Michigan. I fail to understand why some people seem to dislike Custer.
