Payton Remiger CTIS History Mr. David Cink “Draw me not without reason; sheath me not without honor.” This quote was stated by the famous George Armstrong Custer. Custer engraved this quote into the sword he obtained after his first battle, which was the beginning of his path to fame. In the book Custer Fighter of the Plains it gives accounts of Custer’s early life and explained why he was influenced to become a soldier. It gave accounts of Custer’s rise to become a major general in the Union army, and his valiant battles against the American Indians of the plains. Custer had always wanted to be a soldier. From the beginning his large family strongly influenced him. In Custer’s younger years he grew up in New Rumley, Ohio. Later on Custer moved to Michigan with his half-sister and attended Stebben’s Academy. Custer never cared for his schoolwork, and longed to read military novels instead. Custer went back to New Rumley to work on his Father's farm, and later returned to Monroe, Michigan to attend seminary. Custer wanted to go to West Point Military Academy, and after several letters and meetings, Custer was accepted by Jefferson Davis. His acceptance gave him the motivation to complete his schoolwork with diligence. At West Point, Custer was hazed, but was well liked by the majority of his fellow soldiers. Custer was confident and knew what he wanted. Occasionally, this would get him into trouble and he would be punished, but Custer always remained respectful.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
