General Custer’s 1874 Black Hills Expedition


General Custer’s 1874 Black Hills Expedition by W. H. Illingworth.  Scarce stereograph with beautiful detail of General Custer’s 1874 Black Hills Expedition.  W. H. Illingworth was hired to photograph the expedition by Captain William Ludlow.  Captain Ludlow provided Illingworth necessary equipment, rations and supplies.  W. H. Illingworth was added to the civilian payroll as a “teamster”.  He was paid a salary of $30.00 a month.  W. H. Illingworth was expected to provide six sets of his exposed plates to the US Army.  Most photographs of Custer’s Regiment are far away.  This is one of the best General Custer’s 1874 Black Hills Expedition images you will fine.  Notice the visible detail and the cannon.  If your a General Custer collector or love the 7th Cavalry you will enjoy this.  World Famous Rebel Relics Priced.
