Battalion in Line

The Voyage of the USS Juniata (1883-1885)

Battalion in Line

The deck log of the Juniata beginning May 6, 1883, lists P. F. Harrington as Commander. The list of officers on board includes Asa M. Mattice, P. Asst. Engineer. Also listed are:  “H. H. Colson, 1st Lieut., USMC, Marines on Board: 4 non-commissioned, 1 drummer, 20 privates.” A notation on the envelope containing this Mattice negative appears to identify the figures on the bridge as Dr. Woods, (Ichabod) Hobbs (Paymaster), Mattice, and (Richard) Mitchell.
