    Ulysses S. Grant: Two Oversized Photographs of Grant's Scouts and Guides. The first, measuring 29.75" x 24.75" and titled "Scouts and Guides / Attached to General Grant's Army operating against Richmond. April 29th, 1864," features thirty-seven men and boys, both white and black, gathered in front of two military tents, a large home in the distance across a desolate field. The mount is damaged along each edge with loss of paper. The left edge is waterstained and the staining touches the left margin of the image. Overall the image is clean.

    The second, by photographer George Prince, measures 27.75" x 21.75" and is titled "General Grant's Scouts. Attached to the Army operating against Richmond 1864 and 1865. Taken at re-union at Washington, D.C., September 20th, 1892." Four men are featured in this studio portrait, one sitting in the foreground, the other three stand to each side and behind him. The mount is waterstained at the lower and left edges; edges are chipped and cracked in places. The upper edge of the image is damaged slightly.
