Visit to the Smithsonian

I'm just back from a week long family trip to Washington DC to check out the museums and monuments. I can confirm that I am NOT a city boy. I was so ready to get out of there.

One of the many cool artifacts I got to see is the famed buckskin jacket of General George Armstrong Custer. Before you ask, no he did not wear this in the Battle of Little Big Horn. According to True West Magazine: "When we look to the historical record, numerous soldiers at the battle confirmed that Custer had tied his jacket to his saddle pack and was wearing his shirt during the battle.”

I love history and artifacts like this just throw another log on the proverbial fire of my interest.
