"The Battle of Trevilian Station; Custer's First Last Stand."

This presentation starts during the American Civil War, but continues onto the infamous plains of Montana of 1876.  The presentation will be a study on Custer’s leadership at the Battle of Trevilian Station, June 11-12, 1864 compared to his leadership at the Battle of Little Big Horn, June 25, 1876, twelve years later.  The Battle of Trevilian Station is often referred to by historians as Custer’s First Last Stand.  We will examine both battles by looking at tactics, leadership, the participants, landscape and weapons.  This will be an exciting and hopefully entertaining talk looking at a snapshot of the life of George Armstrong Custer, one of the most colorful and written about characters in the history of the west. I have visited both battlefields including riding the Little Big Horn on horseback and I look forward to bringing this presentation to you.
