Post-Civil War portrait photographs of Jeremiah M. Rusk by Jeremiah McLain Rusk ( Visual )
in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Two large portrait-style photographs of Jeremiah M. Rusk, an officer in the 25th Wisconsin Infantry Regiment during the Civil War who later became prominent in state and national politics, serving as Governor of Wisconsin and Secretary of Agriculture under President Benjamin Harrison. The first photograph shows an aged Rusk with long white beard from the waist up in full Union uniform with gauntlets, holding his campaign hat in his right hand and his officer's sword in his left. A small mounted caption provides some biographical information about Rusk. The second photograph shows Governor Rusk and seventeen members of his staff, all of whom are Civil War veterans who had an arm or a leg amputated. Referred to as his "maimed staff," these men accompanied Rusk to several G.A.R. national encampments. The photograph shows men with empty coat sleeves, late nineteenth century prosthetic wooden legs, crutches, and canes. It is a high quality photograph that speaks toward the sacrifices made by Civil War soldiers, the camraderie among veterans, and the tendency of the G.A.R. to make use of those images and perceptions to further veterans causes
