George Armstrong Custer and his fabulous mustache

A photo of General George Armstrong Custer, wearing his U.S. Army outfit and a very impressive mustache. General Custer was born in 1839 and died at the Battle of Little Bighorn in 1876. The photo is undated. However, since he is wearing his major general's stars here, this photo was probably taken around 1865, the year the Civil War ended.
