It’s not hard to figure that Gen. George Armstrong Custer’s time in Texas was controversial and paradoxical. His entire military career was that way, starting when he graduated last in his class at West Point in 1861, until the bitter end at Little Big Horn in 1875. Custer stirred controversy and debate in his own time, and historians have continued the debate to the present day. Brilliant or buffoon? Martyr or imbecile? The debate continues.
