“The more I see of movement here (Little Bighorn battlefield), the more I have admiration for Custer, and I am satisfied his like will not be found very soon again.”
US General-in-chief - Lt General Nelson A. Miles
American officers at Custer Grave, West Point Military Academy
“The Army Goes Rolling Along”US ARMY OFFICIAL ANTHEM. Only two US officers in History are cited in this anthem: George A. Custer and George S. Patton.
First to fight for the right,
And to build the Nation’s might,
And The Army Goes Rolling Along
Proud of all we have done,
Fighting till the battle’s won,
And the Army Goes Rolling Along.
Then it’s Hi! Hi! Hey!
The Army’s on its way.
Count off the cadence loud and strong (TWO! THREE!)
For where e’er we go,
You will always know
That The Army Goes Rolling Along.
Valley Forge, Custer’s ranks,
San Juan Hill and Patton’s tanks,
And the Army went rolling along
Minute men, from the start,
Always fighting from the heart,
And the Army keeps rolling along.
Men in rags, men who froze,
Still that Army met its foes,
And the Army went rolling along.
Faith in God, then we’re right,
And we’ll fight with all our might,
As the Army keeps rolling along.
