Photograph of Little Bighorn Casualty Mark Kellogg's Battlefield Marker

Silver gelatin photograph, 6.5 x 8.25 in. Uncredited but possibly taken by D.F. Barry: n.d., ca early 20th century. View of the marker at the Little Bighorn Battlefield showing where Mark Kellogg (1831-1876), a newspaper reporter for the Bismarck Tribune and New York Herald, purportedly fell during the June 25, 1876 battle. Inscribed in white ink, "Mark Kellogg who accompanied Custer was correspondent of NY Herald. No one ever heard his comments or read them." Kellogg wrote the final dispatches covering Custer and his men in the days leading up to the last stand, and he rode with Custer during the battle. The photograph was acquired during the 1960s in Bismarck, ND, with several letters written by D.F. Barry. 


Even toning to print. Very good condition overall. Small chip along top edge. Penciled negative number and notes on verso.
