    Description

    George Armstrong Custer: A Striking Cabinet Card Boldly Signed & Inscribed By His Sister Margaret Custer Calhoun. An early image showing the doomed Custer as he appeared shortly before his ill-fated 1876 foray against the Sioux. While Custer photos inscribed by his wife Elizabeth appear on occasion, this is the first example we can recall from his sister, who lost her lieutenant-husband in the Little Big Horn Massacre. One can only imagine the grief at losing her husband & beloved brother on the same day. K-155 with Howell of New York photographer's credit.
    From the Robert Palazzo Collection

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
