Print This Story Print This Story

Continuing the Custer Memorial Association’s observance of General Custer’s birthday and the 150th Anniversary of the Civil War, “The Rise of George Armstrong Custer, 1861-1865” will be the program for the Custer Birthday celebration on Saturday, December 3. The evening will start with the dinner meal served at 5:30pm at the New Rumley Methodist Church. We will be having Professor Gregory J.W. Urwin, history professor at Temple University as our guest speaker in the Custer Museum and Center.

Professor Urwin is the author or editor of nine books, including Custer Victorious: The Civil War Battles of General George Armstrong Custer; The United States Cavalry: An Illustrated History; and Custer and His Times: Book III. He has lectured all over the country and has appeared in numerous documentaries on the History Channel, A&E, and PBS, including Civil War Journal, Wake Island – Alamo of the Pacific, The Last Days of World War II, and Washington, the Warrior.

The Custer Memorial Association’s own General Custer (aka Rick Williams) will be hosting the dinner served by the Women of the New Rumley United Methodist Church. Dinner music will be performed by our own Herman Neimeyer. Door prizes, provided by area businesses, will be awarded along with a 50/50 cash drawing.
Following Dr Urwin’s program, an auction of Custer related memorabilia and other great items from area businesses will be held. You won’t want to miss this evening.
