George Armstrong Custer Equestrian Monument
George Armstrong Custer Equestrian Monument is an equestrian monument designed and sculpted by Fred Torrey, located in Monroe County, Michigan. It's the only such memorial of its type in the country to honor General George Armstrong Custer.
The monument was initially erected in New Rumley, Ohio on May 30th, 1910 by the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) Department of Monroe to honor Major Marcus Reno. However, after a fire destroyed it in 1928, The GAR decided to recast and relocate it instead and presented it to Pere Cheney Memorial Township for display near "Cheney's Grove," where Custer camped before his ill-fated last battle.
