    General John Gibbon: A Scarce Carte de Visite of the Leader of One of the Columns Intended to Rendezvous with Custer. This is a youthful Civil War image with logo of J. E. McClees, Philadelphia on verso. Signed in pencil as brigadier general below his image. Faint remnant of removed ink lettering at top, minor damage at lower left hand corner. Very nice overall.

    General George Crook had been stymied at the Battle of the Rosebud and Gibbon was not close by when General Custer engaged, but it is believed that the imminent arrival of his force on June 26 contributed to the Indians' decision to break off their siege of Reno and Benteen.
