My older son is in 1st grade. He frequently has almost an hour of homework a night. Sometimes more. This seems excessive to me. Am I over reacting or is this normal?

There is no doubt that homework is essntial for even 1st graders. Teachers will usually give the same homework to all the students. Some may complete it in half an hour. Others may take an hour or even more.
What is important is for parents to be in touch with their child and his teacher.

This is excessive. Studies show homework in elementary school has barely any benefits.

I would ask couple of other parents how long it takes for there children. If it's 3 subjects: math, reading, writing, then I would say 30 min is good.
