I had Robert Ray help me re-scan the cavalry photo at a higher dpi, then reduce it for web usage. Jim Hatzell still swears he can see guidons near the back of the column, but I think what he's seeing are spots on the photo. Here is a closup of that area:
Meanwhile, Gus Walker, The Mapinator, wonders if the dark line behind the lead horses is a fort. It certainly is man made, and appears to be a line of tents, corrals, or buildings of some sort. Whatever it is, it changes the caption that the troops are coming back from an Indian campaign. It looks more like a photographer showed up and said, "Can I get a shot of you riding in formation like you're coming back from a hard fought campaign? Oh, and one more thing: please hide the guidons. I want to mess with future generations heads."
"Seeing is believing."
