    Campaigns of 1878 and 1879

    General Nelson Miles and Staff: Harsh Wintertime Photo. 5" x 6.5" cabinet card depicting Nelson Miles, Frank Baldwin and staff dressed in winter gear, standing in the snow drifts. A less romantic view of life on a frontier outpost. The verso is inscribed (in the hand of Baldwin): "Left to right/ O. F. Long, Lt. 5th Inf./ Tilton, Capt-surgeon/ Pope (?) J. W. 5th Inft./ Miles, N. A. Col. 5th Inf./ Baldwin, F. D. 5th Inft. Capt./ Hargons, Capt. " "/ Bailey, Hobart R. Lt. 5th Inf./ Campaigns '78 & '79/ Keogh,/ Montana." Baldwin served with Miles for many years, culminating in the Battle of Wounded Knee. From the Frank D. Baldwin archive we have recently sold.

    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.
