Posed studio portrait of an unidentified standing soldier. Christian Barthelmess (1854-1906) was born in Bavaria and immigrated to the United States in the early 1870s. Enlisting in the U.S. Army in 1876, he directed military bands and was an official army photographer. Barthelmess retired from the Army in 1903, but remained post photographer for Fort Keogh until his death in 1906. Fort Keogh was established in 1877, following Custer's defeat at Little Bighorn, in order to counter the Sioux presence in Montana. The 22nd Infantry was stationed at the fort from 1888-1896.
