This Union portrait was made on the war’s western frontier. Frank Wyatt, cradling his saxhorn, noted on his print that he was a member of Brigadier General Grenville M. Dodge’s band and that he plays second E-flat alto. A resident of Grinnell, he joined the band of the Second Iowa Volunteer Infantry on August 22, 1862. Thirteen months into service, at age thirty-nine, he looks proud but weary. He was one of the older company members; most Union soldiers were between eighteen and twenty-nine.
