M. Ted (inactive) BS: Was Custer a Scumbag? (109* d) RE: BS: Was Custer a Scumbag? 17 Oct 00


Custer was a man who traveled with a publicist--his "triumphs" were always wired immediately to the jounalists back East--his actions seemed more to have been dictated by his ambitions for the presidency than any military considerations, or any orders that he may have gotten. Had he not been massacred, he would have been a presidential candidate, as there were many back East already campaigning for him.

Seems to me that Lt.Colonel Custer had been promoted to the rank of General in the Civil War, then demoted--his most distinguished achievement may be the number of times that he was court-martialed--If it hadn't been for his many political friends, he would have ended up in prison or in front of a firing squad--

GUEST, I wish that you would dignify us with a name--Nasty remarks about people from anonymous sources are not appreciated, no matter how justified or well intentioned they seem to the poster. And there are people here who find names for the repeated anonymous flamers--
