Item #18647

This is an incredible Spanish-American War US Family grouping of two portraits three other 8x10 family photos with some accompanying documentation to two US Army Officers (Father and Son). The Father is Brigadier General Palmer Gaylord Wood. His framed charcoal portrait is 20x24" in size and is in amazing condition. Hand colored and was probably done shortly after the Spanish American War. There are a number of small newspaper clippings also included mainly reporting his death. BG Wood moved to California in 1852 with his parents and joined the 7th California Infantry at the start of the Civil War as a 2nd Lieutenant. He served for the most part actively until 1907 shortly after being promoted Brigadier General and 30 years of service. He passes away in Beverley Hills, California. Next is a portrait of his son William Morton Wood and his wife framed size 14x16". William Morton Wood was a 2nd Lieutenant in the 12th US Infantry Company G. He died in Santiago Cuba from Malaria on 12 August 1898. Included are two original copies of his memorial when he was buried at Arlington National Cemetery. See the link for pictures and more information. http://arlingtoncemetery.net/wmwood.htm There are also a number of other newspaper clippings about the family and their loses. In addition there is one small clipping regarding 2LT Palmer Wood Jr's death from Malaria, also in Cuba. Additionally there are three original family portraits showing all of the children and two showing Mother and Father. Two of the portraits are identified by who is in the photo. Lastly are three copies of Army rolls showing Palmer Wood Sr. during various duty stations to include Angel Island in the San Francisco bay. An absolutely stunning group that should remain together as a family grouping and has a vast potential for further research.
