Custer and Fitz John Porter

Photograph George Custer and Fitz-John Porter

The staff of Gen. Fitz-John Porter. Lieutenant William G. Jones and George A. Custer reclining. This image documents that the staff of a General had it much better than the typical soldier.  These officers can be seen enjoying what appears to be wine and other fine spirits. It is interesting to note that Custer is pictured with a dog.  He appears to be a dog lover, because he is often pictured with a dog nearby. The picture was made by James Gibson.
