Lonny's collection of post-Civil War artifacts is in two parts: First, a memoir of Henry Sayles Kilbourne, a military doctor stationed at Fort Sill, Indian Territory (present-day Oklahoma); second, sketches of life on the Plains, made by Kilbourne after returning home; and finally, Kilbourne's collection of photographs, taken by W.S. Soule, the renowned photographer of the post-Civil War Plains Indians. In the following slideshow, the captions are drawn from Kilbourne's memoir, the images from Kilbourne's sketches and Soule's photos.
