General Custer and the Washita

This video adapted from American Experience documents the early career of General George Custer. While he was a poor student at West Point, Custer's desire to make a name for himself made him one of the Union's most celebrated generals in the Civil War. His postwar exploits in the Kansas Territory, where he led the Washita massacre, also earned him renown as an "Indian fighter."
