About this Item

Half-length, seated in semi-profile. 1 vols. 3-1/2 x 2-1/2 inches. "He stands forever on that dusty Montana slope " Superb image of the still-controversial Custer, the boy-general, gallant Union cavalry officer, ambitious, publicity hungry Indian fighter, and in many ways the U.S. soldier who epitomized the posture of the United States in its Westward Expansion until he himself was killed, with his command, at the Battle of the Little Big Horn in 1876. This photograph, taken by the famous Civil War photographer Mathew Brady, is one of the rarer Brady images of the legendary general. "Even now [1984], after a hundred years, his name alone will start an argument. More significant men of his time can be discussed without passion because they are inextricably woven into a tapestry of the past, but this hotspur refuses to die. He stands forever on that dusty Montana slope ." - Evan S. Connell, SON OF THE MORNING STAR. Half-length, seated in semi-profile. 1 vols. 3-1/2 x 2-1/2 inches. Bookseller Inventory # 232129
