This is one of a small group of photos Custer had taken at Brady’s Gallery in New York City on or about February 15, 1864. Katz has numbered them K-28 to K-33, of which this is #29. Custer had married on February 9 and the couple traveled east by train, staying in New York City from about February 13 to 17. Custer is shown seated, shorn of his locks for his wedding, and is wearing a regulation brigadier general’s frock coat, considerably less flashy than many of his outfits, and perhaps deemed more appropriate for a respectable married man. The focus is a tad soft on the shoulder strap nearest the camera, but the clarity of his features in semi-profile is outstanding. The card is nicely marked with the standard “E. & H.T. ANTHONY 501 Broadway. New York / from photographic negative in Brady’s National Portrait Gallery” backmark on reverse. There is no indication of the tax stamp required on photographs sold from about August 1864 to August 1866. The condition is excellent, with good corners, no folds, creases, foxing, etc. [sr] [PH:L]
