It has been said that General Custer of the Seventh Cavalry carried a pistol like the one on this plaque, which makes the General George A. Custer Wood Display Plaque a great reminder of the well-known commander. Born in 1839, George Armstrong Custer was destined to go down in the history books. In 1858, Custer was admitted to West Point, and while he graduated at the bottom of his class, the onset of the Civil War saw that all officers were called to serve with the Union Army. There, Custer proved himself to a capable and effective cavalry commander, one who saw great success and formed many bonds with important figures throughout the war. He was even present at General Lees surrender at Appomattox. However, his accomplishments are far outshined by his abysmal failure at the Battle of Little Big Horn. This plaque depicts the style of pistol that Custer very likely would have favored, especially early in his career as a soldier. This replica of an 1860 cap and ball revolver has a beautiful wood grip, a brass finished frame, and a black barrel and cylinder. The working action makes this a great display piece and a fantastic prop weapon, as well as a novel piece of history to hold and inspect. It is displayed on a pair of spring-loaded bullet hangers, which make it easy to mount and remove, while the lightly-hued wood plaque acts as an excellent and attractive background for the pistol. Further decorating the plaque is a black and white print of General Custer himself, as well as a 7th Cavalry insignia and a small brass name plate that gives a few short details on the pistol itself. The General George A. Custer Wood Display Plaque is a great decoration to have, especially if you love the Civil War and later Indian War eras of United States history. And as an added bonus, the pistol can easily be used as a great prop weapon, in your own Civil War costumes or historical attires.
