MUSIC AND THE LITTLE BIG HORN
Custerís Last Command - A song by Frank Fara is the music that opens this page (note some Web Browsers do not support playing this song when the page is opened)
My General leads the column, known by his bright red tie
It blows against his golden hair in the blue Montana sky
Frank Faraís song of George Armstrong Custer and the 7th U.S. Cavalry captures the essence of their march leading up to their day of destiny at the Little Bighorn. At that time, in 1876, Custer was one of the most popular and admired military heroes in the United States. It was with shock and disbelief that reports of his death and defeat were read in newspapers across America. Singer ~ Songwriter Frank Fara catapults us back in time to relive this pivotal moment in the history of the Indian Wars. His song gives us a seasoned perspective of one of the most colourful and controversial icons of the Western Frontier ~ General George Armstrong Custer. The CAGB are delighted that Frank has asked us to use the song to open our website.
Husband and wife team Frank Fara and Patty Parker have found a way to capture the grandeur and romance of the Great American West! To the delight of tourists and locals alike, they bring to life colourful characters and spectacular places via their Southwest Songs.
