And while I'm on the subject, Custers "socialite wife" was at Ft. Lincoln at the time of her husbands demise, that's waaayyy up north on the plains, damned little socializing going on there. When he got his, the pay stopped and she was hauled to the nearest RR depot and sent back to Michigan at her own expense, as were all the other wives. No V.A. rep. in those days.
