What I particularly liked about this show is that it showed Custer managing his career as what today is called a "celebrity". Inside the Army, outside the army, he always had an eye on how to promote his own fame and therefore his fortune. It gave a very interesting view of Custer creating and managing his "brand". Too bad for old Yellow Hair that his luck ran out before his ship came in.
