Q: George Armstrong Custer met his end during the Battle of Little Big Horn in Montana, but where - in Kansas - was his famous 7th Cavalry Regiment born?
The U-S 7th Cavalry was created and initially headquartered at Fort Riley, Kan., in 1866.
In 1887, Fort Riley became the site of the U-S Cavalry School. Today, the U-S Cavalry Museum is located there. An active military base for more than 150 years, thousands of soldiers remain stationed there. Fort Riley was once - and is now again - home of the famous First Infantry Division, better known as the "Big Red One."
