Daughter of the 24th Michigan, Kristina Austin Scarcelli, will perform Civil War era songs on Saturday, December 5, 2009 to commemorate the 170th birthday of America’s most controversial military leader General George Armstrong Custer in his adopted hometown of Monroe, Michigan.
Custer, the youngest general in United States history, commanded the esteemed Michigan Cavalry Brigade during the Civil War and rallied his troops with the famous battle cry: “C’mon you Wolverines!” The birthday celebration is open to the public and takes place from 2 PM to 3:30 PM at the Monroe County Historical Museum, 126 S. Monroe Street.
The former Mrs. Michigan will sing a haunting rendition of Faded Coat of Blue and other selections from her soon-to-be released CD Daughter of the 24th Michigan. She’ll also perform General Custer’s favorite song Gary Owen.Read more

HistoryMatters-

  George Armstrong Custer was definately NOT the youngest general in US history. That honor went to Galusha Pennypacker.

  Custer was born on 05Dec 1839 and was made a Brigadier General of US Volunteers effective on 29Jun 1863, at the age of 23 years and six months.

  Galusha Pennypacker was born on 01Jun 1844 and was made a Brigadier General of US Volunteers on 28Apr 1865, with an effective date of 18Feb 1865. Thus, using the 18 Feb date, he was 20 years and eight months old.
