Private William Henry Lord, a cavalryman, sits alert and ready for the next ride. A yet unmuddied enlistee from "Bleeding Kansas," the last state to enter the Union before Fort Sumter, Lord was in the Eleventh Kansas Volunteer Cavalry; he was wounded in the shoulder in October 1864 but rejoined his company and was mustered out in September 1865.
