    [George Armstrong Custer]. Large Mounted Albumen of General Philip Sheridan and Members of His Staff. Measuring 17.25" x 10.5", Gen. Sheridan, featured at extreme left and staring at the camera, stands next to a table where his generals pour over what appears to be a map. The generals from left to right are: James Forsyth, Wesley Merritt, Thomas C. Devin, and George Armstrong Custer. Affixed to a mount to an overall size of 21" x 14.5". Mount is unevenly toned and scattered spots of foxing are seen on the mount and image. Damage to the lower left corner of the mount does not affect the photograph.
