Lieutenant Josiah M. Hubbard - 11th Kansas Cavalry Uniform
Lieutenant Josiah M. Hubbard, 11th Kansas Cavalry ca. 1862 - a superb frontier cavalry officer's uniform with his original "eagle" sword belt of brown russet leather. An abolitionist, he followed John Brown to Kansas in 1856 to ensure that Kansas was a Free State, meaning that slavery was not allowed. He was with Henry Ward Beecher when he made his famous bible and rifle speech and he was in Lawrance when it was sacked and burned by Quantrill's men which included Frank and Jesse James. In 1862 he enlisted in the 11th Kansas, immediately went to Arkansas and fought in the "Battle of Pea Ridge," and later against Hindman's Arkansas Confederates at the Battle of Prairie Grove. He then served escorting wagon trains to Fort Gibson where they fought numerous battles against Cherokee General Stand Watie and ended the war fighting Sioux Indians near Fort Laramie. His only brother was killed at the Battle of Antietam in 1862.
After the war Lieutenant Hubbard was responsible for opening the first school in Kansas for the freed slaves. An extremely rare border war cavalry officer's uniform worn by this follower of John Brown who not only fought to make Kansas a free state before the war but fought to keep it free during the war.
