    7th Cavalry Mills Cartridge Belt and Holster, Used by one of the Indian soldiers in Troop L. The belt is stamped verso with "7" and "L". The model 1872 holster is stamped on the flap "53/L". The leather billet is personalized on the back with stylized lettering "F O X" above what may be a brand or totem. The Cartridge loops are quite worn, and the holster toe cap is missing. Otherwise this fascinating piece is sound. Troop L was mustered in 1891 at Fort Sill and designated the "Indian Troop." The last of the Indian soldiers was discharged in 1897.
    From the Glenwood Swanson Collection.
