DUQUESNE BLUES


This is the name of an unattached company of colored infantry now in service as National Guardsmen. The command was organized in the spring of 1874, and is a model company in many respects. It was intended to insert the entire list of names, but after frequent efforts to get the rolls, without success, this short sketch is necessarily substituted for the entire history.

The company has a fine armory on the corner of Center and Main streets, Springfield. The present officers are

Captain, Henry Harper (now serving on his second term, and the senior Infantry Captian of the Ohio National Guard.

First Lieutenant, Hubbard P. George.

Second Lieutenant, Robert R. Rudd

It is much to be regretted that the data for a more extended notice of this company cannot be had.
