Abstract:

Correspondence, papers and photographs of Keogh returned to his family in Ireland after his death, together with letters received by the family relating to Keogh, and newspaper clippings. The family assembled two albums to honor the memory of Keogh, the first containing original documents and photographs and the second comprising a letter book relating to his service record. Loose materials in the albums (correspondence, papers, photographs, and newspaper clippings) have been housed in separate folders.

Collection includes letters from United States government and military officials (1865-1866) supporting Keogh's application for a commission after the Civil War. Correspondents include Secretary of War Edwin Stanton, General George Wheeler Schofield and General Alvan Gillem. An order from General Samuel Sturgis (April 10, 1878) pertains to Keogh's horse, Comanche, which survived him. Letters received by Keogh's sister Margaret relate to his bravery and death in battle. Included are Keogh's commission papers as Brevet Lieutenant Colonel (March 13, 1865) and Captain (July 28, 1866); his U.S. citizenship papers (August 25, 1869); and his passport (August 26, 1869). Photographs include six of Keogh in uniform and civilian dress, one of his grave, and one of Margaret Martin with a child. Also included are newspaper clippings relating to the Battle of the Little Big Horn, and to Comanche.
