Throughout his life Custer was known by a variety of nicknames. He was called "Autie" (his early attempt to pronounce his middle name) and Armstrong. During the Civil War, Custer was frequently termed "The Boy General" in the press, reflecting his promotion to brigadier general at the age of 23; during his years on the Plains in the Indian Wars, his troopers often referred to him with grudging admiration as "Iron Butt" and "Hard Ass" for his physical stamina in the saddle and his strict discipline, as well as with the more derisive "Ringlets" for his vanity about his appearance in general and his long, curling blond hair in particular.<ref>{{cite book |title= Killing Custer: The Battle of Little Bighorn and the Fate of the Plains Indians|last= Welch|first= James|coauthors= Stekler, Paul|year= 2007|publisher= W.W.

[[File:George-a-custer west-point.jpg|thumb|[[United States Military Academy|USMA]] Cadet George Armstrong "Autie" Custer, ca. 1859]]
 
Custer spent much of his boyhood living with his half-sister and brother-in-law in [[Monroe, Michigan]], where he attended school. Before entering the [[United States Military Academy]], Custer attended the McNeely Normal School, later known as Hopedale Normal College, in [[Hopedale, Ohio]]. While attending Hopedale, Custer, together with classmate William Enos Emery, was known to have carried coal to help pay for their room and board. After graduating from McNeely Normal School in 1856, Custer taught school in [[Cadiz, Ohio]].<ref name="Custer Lives Bio">{{cite web|title=General George Custer Biography, US 7th Cavalry|url=http://custerlives.com/custer1.htm|publisher=Custer Lives!|accessdate=16 May 2012}}</ref>
 
 
Custer graduated as the last of 34 cadets<ref name="e196">{{Cite book| author=Eicher, John H. and David J. Eicher. | title=Civil War High Commands | location=Stanford, California | publisher=Stanford University Press | year=2001 | isbn=0-8047-3641-3}} p. 196.</ref> in the Class of June 1861 from the [[United States Military Academy]], just after the start of the Civil War.<ref>[[Media:1860 census Custer.jpg|Custer]] in the [[1860 US Census]] at [[West Point]].</ref> Custer's West Point class (originally the Class of 1862) was graduated a year early to meet the Army's pressing need for trained officers. Ordinarily, Custer's low class rank would be a ticket to an obscure posting, but Custer had the fortune to graduate just as the [[American Civil War|Civil War]] broke out. Custer's tenure at the Academy had been rocky, as he came close to expulsion in each of his three years due to excessive demerits, many from pulling pranks on fellow cadets.{{Citation needed|date = August 2012}}

I have just send you the following email.

To Whom It May Concern,

I have serious problems with people editing my page.

I have done everything within to remove the one sided information on my page. However every time I review my page the nonsense is back.

Is there anything that I can do? Please help.

I would have no problem if my Wikipedia page is being removed completely. This is very unfortunate, but that is the way it is.

I hope to hear from someone,

Kind regards,

Harold Robles
