Photo: 1872-75. The subject of this photograph is most likely a Tonkawa Indian scout serving with the U.S. Army at Fort Concho. The scout is equipped with a U.S. Army Springfield rifle, and he wears a regulation U.S. Army belt with rectangular belt-plate showing the Federal eagle. The short hair-pipe breastplate is typical of those worn by Southern Plains Indians. Source: Lawrence T. Jones III.
John Morton-Finney was a Buffalo soldier who fought in WW1, earned 11 degrees, and practiced law right up until he was 106 years old. Finney was believed to be the longest practicing attorney in the United States, taking the record from Rush Limbaugh I (1891-1996) who practiced law for 75 years.
