According to J. David Petruzzi, award-winning Civil War author and historian, “Custer, Before the Storm brings to life the moment when the newly-minted young Brigadier General George Armstrong Custer prepares to lead elements of his Michigan Cavalry Brigade in their battle against Major General J.E.B. Stuart’s Confederate Cavalry on the Rummel Farm grounds at Gettysburg on July 3, 1863. Lawes has captured in Custer’s eyes both the naiveté of the flamboyant young new general in the face of the enemy, as well as the determination that will lead him through many collisions with death that will ultimately lead to the Little Big Horn thirteen years later. Custer, Before the Storm shows the palpable, heart-racing moments prior to battle when boys become men, and lives fortunate enough to continue are forever changed.”
