(2) A full-length pose in frock coat with epaulettes, holding his sword and slouch hat. E. Anthony backmark (New York). A veteran of the Seminole and Mexican-American Wars, Lyon was assigned to the Union Arsenal in St. Louis in February 1861 and is credited for stopping the Missouri secession movement.
