Oval photograph, 3.5 x 5 in., on cabinet card mount with recto and verso credit to D.F. Barry, West Superior, WI. One of several distinguished portraits of Curley taken by Barry at a single session, ca 1878.
 
Curley (ca 1856-1923) was a member of the Crow nation and served as a scout under Custer during one of the most famous battles in the west. Hailed as a hero and cursed as a coward, he is a controversial historic figure whose reputation vacillated during and beyond his lifetime. He is one of the only surviving members of Custer's command at the Battle of Little Bighorn and is buried there.
