    Description

    The "Custer Clan": A Rare Large Format Image of an 1875 Outing near Fort Lincoln. This image by Orlando S. Goff must surely be considered one of the most desirable Custer images. The cast of characters is remarkable! From left to right: Lt. James Calhoun, Leonard Swett, Capt. Stephen Baker, 2nd Lt. Winfield Edgerly, Miss Emily Watson, Capt. Myles Keogh, Margaret Custer Calhoun, Libbie Custer, Dr. Holmes Paulding, George Armstrong Custer, Mrs. Nettie Smith, Dr. George R. Lord, Capt. Thomas Weir, 1st Lt. William Cooke, 2nd Lt. Richard Thompson, Miss Nellie Wadsworth, Miss Emma Wadsworth, 1st Lt. Tom Custer, and 1st Lt. Algernon Smith!

    This image is listed by Dr. Mark Katz as K-140. However, he describes it as a cabinet card. In this larger format (photo itself measuring 8" x 5.75") it may well be unique. The photo itself is in excellent condition, unfaded and with good contrast. Damage and staining to the mount. Two soft vertical creases on the right side, not affecting the images of the principals, detracts little.
