George Harrison, before he passed away after a battle with
Lung Cancer.

On November 29, 2001, English musician and songwriter George Harrison died at the age of 58. Harrison achieved global fame as
a member of
the Beatles and went on to a successful solo career
that included frequent collaborations with many of the foremost musicians of his generation.

Harrison was born in Liverpool in 1943 and joined the group, then
known as the Quarrymen, when he was barely 15. Harrison became
the group’s lead guitarist and frequently sang, but he developed a reputation as the “quiet Beatle” and was oftentimes overshadowed
by the duo of John Lennon and Paul McCartney. Nonetheless, his influence on the group, and rock music in general, was profound.

BATTLE OF WASHITA RIVER ON THIS DAY

See the source image

On November 27, 1868, without bothering to identify the village
or do any reconnaissance, Lieutenant Colonel
George Armstrong
Custer
led an early morning attack on a band of peaceful Cheyenne
living with Chief Black Kettle.

Convicted of desertion and mistreatment of soldiers earlier that year
in a military court, the government had suspended Custer from rank
and command for one year. Ten months into his punishment, in September 1868, General
Philip Sheridan reinstated Custer to lead
a campaign against Cheyenne Indians who had been making raids
in
Kansas and Oklahoma that summer. Sheridan was frustrated by
the inability of his other officers to find and engage the enemy, and despite his poor record and unpopularity with the men of the 7th
Cavalry, Custer was a good fighter.
