    Accompanying this lot is a Certificate of Authenticity issued by the artist. Included on this certificate is the following description:

    "When called upon to light on foot, every fourth man of a set of fours would hold the other three troopers' horses and lead them back out of firing range. The dismounted men would form a 'Skirmish Line' at 6-9 foot intervals. This bronze depicts a trooper fighting on the line in the mid 1870's. He is wearing the M1872 pleated blouse and folding campaign hat. He is armed with the 1873 Colt SAA, 45 cal. revolver and 1873 Springfield carbine with the carbine cartridges carried in a modified Civil War sabre belt. His steady eye and coolness under fire prove him to be a veteran."
