    Description

    C. 1879 Albumen Image of Troopers of the 2nd U. S. Cavalry. Crisp 3 3/4" X 4 3/4" albumen view on the original 6 1/2" X 8 1/2" mount. Very fine condition with just one very light, really negligible, crease. View depicts ten mounted troopers with equipment, wearing various headgear eg. kepis, slouch hats, with what is apparently Major Gregg in front. Period ink script ID on verso, "Sept 2nd The Military Outfit / Major Gregg, 2nd U. S. Cavalry / in Command". Although undated the identical configuration to the other images doubtless dates it to 1879. The 2nd US Cavalry was stationed on the Montana frontier during this period and heavily engaged with hostile Indians. Again a most rare, and possibly unique and unpublished, image.

    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.
