Daughter of the 24th Michigan, Kristina Austin Scarcelli, will perform Civil War era songs on Saturday, December 5, 2009 to commemorate the 170th birthday of America’s most controversial military leader General George Armstrong Custer in his adopted hometown of Monroe, Michigan.
Custer, the youngest general in United States history, commanded the esteemed Michigan Cavalry Brigade during the Civil War and rallied his troops with the famous battle cry: “C’mon you Wolverines!” The birthday celebration is open to the public and takes place from 2 PM to 3:30 PM at the Monroe County Historical Museum, 126 S. Monroe Street.
The former Mrs. Michigan will sing a haunting rendition of Faded Coat of Blue and other selections from her soon-to-be released CD Daughter of the 24th Michigan. She’ll also perform General Custer’s favorite song Gary Owen.Read more
