Description

This cabinet photo contains a good number of old Indian Wars veterans, and decorated men I believe taken at Fort Robinson, Nebraska circa 1892.

Without going through all these names, I will touch on a few; [17] Colonel James Biddle was promoted to that rank in 1891, and the officer to his left, [18] Lt. Col. Bernard, was promoted to that rank in 1892 [16] Major C.S Ilsley was at Wounded Knee; [5] 2nd Lt. M.A. Batson, Medal of Honor, for gallantry at Calamba, Luzon, PI, 1899; [12] Capt. M.W. Day, Medal of Honor, Against Apaches at Las Animas Canyon, NM, 1879; [4] john Hank Alexander, Black Officer, USMA, died 1894; [15] 1st Lt. E.F. Ladd, Regt. Quartermaster, and HIS PHOTO; [14] Capt. J.S. Loud, an original officer of the 9th; [8] Capt. J.F. Guilfoyle, brevet 1st Lt. for actions against Indians at White Sands, NM, 1881, San Andreas Mtns, NM, 1881, Monica Springs, NM 1881; [20] Capt. C.A. Stedman, with 9th Cav. since 1870.

Condition is very good, with some light fading.  Each officer is numbered with ink, in the period, and identified on the reverse.  This photo belonged to Lt. Ladd, as his name is printed at bottom of photo, that being my assumption.

It is most difficult to get a photos of this many officers from one regiment in this period, but this being Fort Robinson, a large and established post, and probably HQ for the regiment, this is staff and several company officers.
