Howdy, I want to update your info. On John Johnston. I am finishing a book on him and going back over old notes and photos. The Lt you have pictured here is not Johnston. He was one of the troops chasing the Nez Perce from the West. John Garrison was Johnston's brother. The family name was Garrison. Liver Eating Johnston was more of a plainsman than mountain man, since he did not get out west until 1862 or so. www.johnlivereatingjohnston.com
