Something Wicked This Way Comes...
George Armstrong Custer
'Defender' of Deadwood
After his defeat in the battle of Little Big Horn, Lt. Colonel Custer was discharged from the Union Army. Naturally, he blamed his loss and the discharge that followed on the Indians. He made revenge his life’s work, gathering a sizable army of mercenaries, freelancers and other folk.
In September 1880, Custer’s long wait is over. The slaughter of a dozen miners near Deadwood raises a chorus of outrage, and Custer decides the time to invade is now. He crosses the Missouri River and rides toward Deadwood with his force of irregulars.
