Custer and the Confederate Wedding

In August, 1862, Captain George Custer attended the wedding of West Point classmate, and Confederate officer, John Lea. One thing often overlooked in a discussion of war is how it affects the strongest of human emotions- love. Maybe it is the time of great loss that makes us recognize what is most precious.
