    General Lee Proudly Posing with Traveller, his Wartime Companion. Early imperial size cabinet card lithograph of this famous photograph with Lee dressed in all his regalia and Traveller standing motionless. A very popular image.

    Traveller, Lee's favorite horse, was born in 1857, he was sixteen hands tall, with gray color and black points. In 1861 General Lee bought him for $200 and they were together for the rest of Traveller's life. When the war ended, Traveller went with Lee to Washington College. Traveller died in 1871. Washington College displayed his bones until the 1970s when, finally, Traveller's remains were buried near General Lee. Measures approximately 8" x 5".

    Good-very good.
