Text, side A
Only this foundation remains from the house in which Custer was born, Dec. 5, 1839. Custer's boldness and daring during the Civil War won him the rank of Brigadier General in 1863, and the nickname "Boy General." He later commanded the 7th Cavalry during the western Indian wars. Custer and his entire command died in the battle of Little Bighorn, Montana Territory, June 26, 1876.
