Abstract:

Assorted papers and photographs pertaining to the military career of Brigadier General Charles King. The collection includes correspondence, personal diary, newspaper articles, photographs, and photo negatives concerning his service during the Spanish-American War until his death in 1933. The diary provides a record of his daily activities for 1898 and includes entries about the destruction of the U.S.S. Maine, his attempts to gain a commission as an officer in the event of war, and his eventual assignment to the 2nd Brigade of the 1st Division, VIII Corps. The correspondence includes letters King wrote to friends after the end of the Philippine-American War, and telegrams he received from John C. Spooner concerning his assignment to a military unit during the Spanish-American War. Of particular interest is a letter (February 21, 1898) written by King that recounts a promise from Wisconsin Governor Edward Scofield that he would appoint King to head a Wisconsin brigade in the event of war with Spain. Newspaper articles consist of his appointment to the 2nd Brigade, highlights of his military career and his death. The photographs consist mainly of portraits of King in uniform. Most of the images were taken around the time of the Spanish-American War with a few showing him as an elderly man. Of particular interest is a series of portraits showing the uniform King wore when he escorted President William McKinley's wife, Ida, during the President's inauguration of 1897. Also included are images of King inspecting troops and participating in parades while on horseback, an image of him on the deck of a transport ship just before sailing to the Philippines, and a photograph of King taken while he was in Switzerland. Negatives include an image of an older King standing on a wooden plank walkway and an image of King on horseback inspecting troops. Also included are photocopies of images concerning the donation of the diary to the Wisconsin Veterans Museum.
