    Oregon Militia Photograph Collection. On July 5th, 1843 Oregon passed the first militia law, and thus the history of the Oregon militia began. The militia had a rocky beginning, plagued by long marches, cold winters, and very little glory and battle time. It was not until several new legislations and the Spanish-American War did the Militia get to show its true colors. Nevertheless, this regiment has a proud history of grit and determination. This lot features 34 photographs of members of this group. Ranging in dates from post Civil War to the early 20th century. Some notable men featured are George Earle Chamberlain, Zenas Ferry Moody, and Sylvester Pennoyer. All the pictures in this lot are in excellent condition with very little wear or fading. This is a fantastic lot to commemorate a long standing and fearless group.
