Custer's Centennial in Monroe

Monroe is celebrating the 100th birthday of the unveiling of their General George A. Custer statue this year! We were able to stand and admire him under sunny blue skies this past weekend. Monroe is a beautiful old-timey town with the Raisin River flowing through it and pedestrian bridges to meander over. They also have lots of quaint shops and an Irish pub called McGeady's where supposedly George had his last drink before heading out to the Battle of the Little Big Horn.

  1. No Custer did not drink, but he did visit McGeady's often. When he did drink, he may have done so here before giving it up early on in his life. I eat there whenever in amazing Monroe.
