Two (2) cartes including a full-view sitting George Armstrong Custer (1839-1876) by Styles' Vermont Gallery of Art, Burlington; and George Crook (1828-1890) by Ewing & Company, Cumberland, Maryland. The Custer view is K-78, taken by Mathew Brady in Washington, D.C. on May 23, 1865. Like Custer, Crook fought in the Indian Wars, but could not defeat Geronimo.

From the collection of Dr. Michael Krane.
