    George A. Custer Endorsement Signed "G.A. Custer" as lieutenant colonel of the Seventh Cavalry. One page, 3.25" x 3.5", Fort Abraham Lincoln [Dakota Territory], June 16, 1875. The 7th Cavalry was created shortly after the end of the Civil War and Custer was assigned as acting commander, a post he held until his death at the Battle of Little Big Horn in June 1876. The 7th had occupied Ft. Abraham Lincoln since 1873 and it was here, two years later (and nearly one year to the day before Custer met his end), that he signed this endorsement, which read: "Respectfully forwarded through Headquarters Dept. of Dakota." Fine. Matted with an iconic photograph of Custer and framed to an overall size of 6.5" x 12".

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
