Lt. J. B. Washington and Second Lt. George Custer. Double cute. This picture was taken after Washington was captured as a Confederate prisoner. Washington and Custer were ex-classmates and friends. Custer is best known for The Battle of Little Bighorn, aka “Custer’s Last Stand,” part of the Great Sioux War. Custer lost his life and his regiment suffered a severe defeat.
Sad story, no? All I can say is, at least they were good lookin’.
Well all I can say is: Goddamn, boy! This confederate prisoner guy must have seceded from the union because it just couldn’t handle all that sexy. Also, I love that Custer was like, “Oh hey, I know that guy! Yeah, the one in handcuffs! We went to school together. Here, let’s get a picture!”
Who does that.
