    Where was the picture taken? Would guess it’s in Illinois given the Black Hawks recent success. Also, is it the real cup or a repro?

        Ah, the Holy Grail of the NHL and about the only thing Detroit has left to claim. Sad but true.

    He did fight in the Black Hawk War, after all. But in the current cycle I expect it to be back with Joe Hooker’s statue in ’14. 🙂

      So where in Brooklyn will you be posing with the Cup when the time comes?

    You know, Stanley was a Grenadier Guards officer (purchase) before he went into politics, and the 1st Battalion was one of the eight infantry battalions sent to BNA in December, 1861-January, 1862 because of the Trent Affair.

    So see, there’s (probably) a Civil War link.
