Through an Officer’s Eyes: The Photo Album of Edward B. Pratt, U.S. Army, 1873-1902

For three decades in the late 19th century, Edward Pratt assembled a photo album recording his experiences as an infantry officer. Pratt’s career, including his six years at Fort Mackinac, took him from frontier outposts of the southwest to America’s imperial experiment in the Philippines. Each image is a glimpse of the people, places, and experiences which shaped Pratt’s life as an army officer in a rapidly-modernizing world.
