Baggage Train

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“[African American] drivers of the baggage train attached to General Pleasonton’s Cavalry brigade watering their mules in the Rappahannock. General Pleasonton’s cavalry was attended by a very efficient forage brigade, consisting of mules and [African American] riders. Our sketch represents their drivers taking them to water at the river. The hard work these animals will endure is something wonderful, and justifies the high estimation in which they are held in the army.” — Frank Leslie, 1896
