Funny quote attributed to Custer

"Where did all those Indians come from!?!" I guess this is why he was last in his Tactics class at West Point. :)

Heard that one before, but I don't think it's an actual quote by Custer.
Just a funny line someone has attributed to him.
Dead Last in his class...

Oh well, when you consider George Pickett came out first in that class I wouldn't consider it one of the Point's "stronger classes" :D

Actually I think you meant George McClellan, who was #2 in his West Point Class. George Pickett was at the bottom of his class, but McClellan wasn't all that much of a prize as #2.
