    CARTE DE VISITE OF LYMAN DeHUFF GILBERT, MARCUS RENO'S ATTORNEY. In an 1879 case that propelled him into the national spotlight, Lyman Gilbert successfully defended Army Major Marcus A. Reno, 7th Cavalry, at an inquiry about his actions at the Battle of Little Bighorn. This 1866 CDV shows Gilbert in profile, with his name penciled at lower edge in an unknown hand. Affixed to photographer's mount of D.C. Burnite of Harrisburg, PA, and featuring a three-cent Internal Revenue stamp on verso. Unfortunate crease across the center of the image could be easily repaired. An excellent association piece for the Custer collector.
