    Blockhouse at Fort Lincoln, Dakota Territory: Stereoview by F. Jay Haynes, Circa 1877. A rare stereoview of the blockhouse at the Fort Lincoln. There is an armed guard standing at attention on the parapet, other structures of the famous fort are visible in the background. Fort Abraham Lincoln, Dakota Territory, was headquarters for both infantry and cavalry troops in order to protect Northern Pacific Railroad construction workers. Major General George Armstrong Custer, being the first commanding officer with his famous 7th Cavalry, was sent to command Fort Lincoln. The rest is history. This image negative no. 92 from the series "Scenery Along the Line of the Northern Pacific Rail Road," photographed and published by F. Jay Haynes, Moorhead, Minnesota, 1877. Frank Jay Haynes was the official photographer of the Northern Pacific Railroad, documenting the landscapes and sights along the track running across the northern tier of the country. Photographs are mounted on Haynes' green Northern Railroad mount. Some damage to mount and scattered foxing on print that does not detract from the focus of the image. 7" x 4".

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
