[Custer addresses the officers after his arrival at Fort Lincoln]



George Armstrong Custer:
We're responsible for the protection of 100,000 square miles of territory. And against us are ranged thousands of the finest light cavalry on earth. I found that out this morning. It's a big job, gentlemen... and it's gonna need a fine regiment. Our job is to make this the finest regiment that the United States ever saw. I needn't tell most of you that a regiment is something more than just six hundred disciplined fighting men. Men die. But a regiment lives on; because a regiment has an immortal soul of its own. Well, the way to begin is to find it. To find something that belongs to us alone. Something to give us that pride in ourselves that'll make men endure - and, if necessary, die... with their boots on. As for the rest it's easy: since it's no more than hard work, hard riding and hard fighting. Thank you, gentlemen, I know I can count on you.

George Armstrong Custer:
You may be right about money, Sharp; quite right. But there's one thing to be said for glory.

[after they first meet, Custer walks Miss Bacon to Gen. Sheridan's house]



George Armstrong Custer:
Do you think if I were to come strolling past your house around nine o'clock at night you might be just sitting around on the veranda?



Elizabeth Bacon:
Life is full of surprises.



George Armstrong Custer:
And if I did find you sitting on the porch perhaps you and I could go for a walk together.



Elizabeth Bacon:
[laughs] We seem to have been walking together ever since we met.



George Armstrong Custer:
Well, I can't imagine, ma'am - if I may say so - any pleasanter journey, ma'am, than walking through life with you beside me, ma'am.
