The city of Monroe is celebrating the life and times of one of its most famous persons, George Armstrong Custer. The event takes on a somber note with a cemetery tour conducted by Dave Ingall, gesturing, assistant director of the Monroe County Historical Museum. Custer is not buried there, but other family members and city pioneers are.


In a ligher vein, Ernie LaPointe, great-grandson of Sitting Bull, whose tribe vanquished Custer at the Battle of Little Big Horn, shakes hands with Steve Alexander of Monroe, who portrays Custer during a talk at Fort Meigs State Memorial in Perrysburg. Mr. LaPointe also took part in Custer Celebration activities in Monroe.
