Custer Enjoys A Picnic

Written by: George Chittenden : 01 Aug 2019

This photo was taken during the summer of 1862 and shows George Armstrong Custer stroking a dog and relaxing with Union troops at a picnic. The image has been colourised, which really brings it to life. Custer built a strong reputation during the Civil War and was a highly effective cavalry commander. His first engagement, was the Battle of Bull Run on July 21st, 1861. His success eventually led to his promotion to Captain of the U.S. Army in May 1864.

Custer died, alongside two of his brothers and his entire battalion at the Battle of Little Bighorn in Montana, fighting against a group of Native American tribes. It’s a battle often referred to as “Custer’s Last Stand”, and unfortunately, he was defeated so decisively that day, his death overshadows all his prior achievements.
