1866-1899 US soldiers


Recommended Posts

Hello

Just found this subforum and thought I would start a thread.

 

I will post some of mine, mostly cabinet cards a couple to CDV's, mine are of soldiers wearing marksmanship medals

 

I have posted some on other threads and sorry if you get tired of them.

 

If you have any post them

 

Sorry if posting multiple posts is not cool but most of my images are large

 

 

this is 11th infantry group and some wearing marksman buttons

"I have only two men out of my company and 20 out of some other company. We need support, but it is almost suicide to try to get it here as we are swept by machine gun fire and constant barrage is on us. I have no one on my left and only a few on my right. I will hold." (Message sent by 1st Lt. Clifton B. Cates. USMC, 96th Co., Soissons, 19 July 1918 - later 19th Commandant of the Marine Corps 1948-1952)

What a GREAT collection of images from a fascinating--and often misunderstood--era. Thank you SO much for sharing them and inviting others to post. I suspect we will be seeing some great images.

Great idea for a thread. I have a few to post, but I need to scan them first. In the meantime, here is one from my collection; an Indiana National Guard officer wearing the 1892 coat.

Received this one from a friend who is in the process of registering and will post some of his when the Admin ok's him

 

So here is an interesting one, you normally see the marksman and sharpshooter medals with the early Laidley buttons but this one has the later rectangular Blunt marksman buttons
