Quick Reference

      Background

      From R&R description:

      Marcus Reno (1834–1889) was a military officer in the American Civil War and in the Great Sioux War, where he served under George Armstrong Custer. He is most noted for his prominent role in the Battle of the Little Bighorn, with his command decisions the subject of great military controversy. Clothbound shipping ledger, 8 x 11.5, listing the numerous ships and passengers arriving at Egypt's Port Said between 1871 and 1919. Signed inside on separate pages in black ink, "Bt. Gen. M. A. Reno, Major 7th Cavalry U.S. Army" and "Theodore Roosevelt, April 9th, 1909." The ledger features a large assortment of signatures from other lesser-known contemporaries. In a clerical hand, the first page lists the arrival of "Genl. W. T. Sherman U.S.A. & Aide" on March 1, 1872, and the top of the fifth page, again in a clerical hand, lists the arrival of "Theodore Roosevelt," "Theodore Roosevelt, Jr." and "Elliot Roosevelt," on February 22, 1873. In very good to fine condition, with the covers loose, heavily worn, and mostly detached; interior pages are generally sound (tears to the first two pages, but fine after).
