1839: George Armstrong Custer, a United States Army officer and cavalry commander in the Civil War and the Indian Wars, is born in New Rumley, Ohio. Custer's early military accomplishments would be overshadowed by his disastrous final battle. Custer and all his men were killed at the Battle of the Little Bighorn in 1876, fighting against a coalition of Native American tribes in a battle that would become known as "Custer's Last Stand."
