[Civil War] Info desired about picture/artist

Help! I have a numbered, hand colored picture that I hope to get some information about. Copyright is 1955, by The Company of Military Collectors and Historians, and has a seal in the upper right corner of the paper with the name "Strathmore". The title of the picture is....
___________________________________________________________
"Tidballs Horse Battery",A Battery,2nd U.S. Artillery,1861
Gun Team, Number One Piece, Right Section
__________________________________________________________
This picture is #35 of 100 prints, and is hand colored and signed by (and I'm not sure of the last name so humor me)
Harry C. Larta Jr.(??) Small cursive L with a g or c next to it on corner of picture.Four soldiers on horseback, charging ahead, one holding US flag.....

I can e-mail a photo, and any info is appreciated. The relative that owned it has passed away, and I am very curious about it. It looks like it could be an important piece of art to someone. Thank You!!!!!!
