Civil War Carte de visite Union Colonel William Thompson Frohock. One of the most colorfull officers I have yet researched. Served with the DC 3rd Battn Infy 4/61-7/61 as a private, Lt. 45th Illinois Vols 12/61-1/64 rising to Captain, Colonel 66th USCT 1/64-9/64, Major 7th Veteran Vols 3/65-4/66, Lt 15th US Infantry 7/66-3/67, Captain 9th US Cavalry Buffalo Soldiers 3/67-5/70. In the 9th he served under such Luminaries as Edward Hatch and Wesley Merritt.
He was eventually forced to resign due to his fraternization with the men, he used to gamble with the colored soldiers causing an uproar with the officer corps. He was Breveted Brigadier General during the Civil War also. Spectacular view with Fancy Sword and very Rare Hancock's VV Corps Badge which is rarely seen.
