I've been driving a lot today, it's late, and I'm too tired to do anything by way of original creativity. I even missed the Ann Arbor Roundtable session tonite due to scheduling conflicts. So I'm leaning tonite on J.D. Petruzzi's blog by linking to an excellent post involving, as he frames it, how Private Norvell Churchill of the 1st Michigan Cavalry, one of Custer’s orderlies, "literally changed history. There may have been no 'Custer defeat' at the Little Big Horn thirteen years later… indeed, there may have been no George Custer at all after that warm July 2." Here tis: Hoofbeats and Cold Steel. These are 500 or so awesome words, for they help keep a great Michigan-in-the-CW story from 'fading' away.
