The first seminar of 2008 will shine the spotlight on George Armstrong Custer, the flamboyant leader who was a hero of the Civil War and the Battle of Gettysburg before he lost his life at the Battle of Little Big Horn.
Jeffry D. Wert, who wrote a book about Custer, will be one of the featured speakers during the March 27-30 seminar. Steve Alexander will portray Custer, as he has done on the History Channel and other television productions. In addition, there will be a special exhibit of artifacts from The Battle of the Little Big Horn.
