Custer was a fighting man, through and through, but wary and wily as brave. There was in him an indescribable something - call it caution, call it sagacity, call it the real military instinct - it may have been genius - but whatever name entitled, it nearly always impelled him to do intuitively, the right thing. In this case it seemed obstinacy if not insubordination. It was characteristic of him to care studiously for the comfort of his men. And he did not believe in wasting their lives. It is more than probably it was in his mind a suspicion of the true state of things. If so, he did not say so, even to the general commanding the division. A very long and interesting story short, Custer moved after a fairly long delay, just in time to intercept the Confederate group under General Fritz Lee, before they had a chance to attack the other columns from the rear. Greatly outnumbered, Custer was eventually forced to retreat, with Lee in pursuit, thus saving the rear ends of the columns that went forward and keeping the bridge open. Stuart's plan fell apart. Lee later noted that, "Custer fought ferociously even in retreat." Dumb luck or instinct? Crazy, reckless?

I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by." -Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt Tales and Trails Continued From Page 2 community Website in a matter of hours, if schooled in the method. North Dakota is the highest state in the Nation with 20- 24 year olds (tech-oriented youth), the fastest growing state in population, the second wealthiest state, the most banks per capita and the only State-owned bank, ranked the friendliest, and the highest concentration of citizens over 80 years- of-age per capita in the country. Youth that left the state ten years ago for lack of opportunities are flooding back, drawn by new jobs and the rural values. In Drayton, a talented group of students have met twice with the goal of preservingthe stories of WWII veterans but funding and broader support are needed to grow resources. Drayton for years has advanced its reach into the digital world by Web streaming "Old Fashioned Christmas" to four continents. Maybe this year, the stories of giving thanks to "Heritage Heroes" canbegintopreserve the spirit of "Old Fashioned Christmas" that sustains the community culture into the new generation, with youth at the vanguard of the parade and the whole community joining in to either march or watch the festivities.
