Cabinet card studio portrait of Buffalo Soldier identified as A.H. Adams of the 9th Cavalry. McBride: Crawford & Ft. Robinson, Nebraska, n.d., circa 1894. Imprint on recto. Inscribed in ink on verso: "A.H. Adams / Troop H, Ninth Cavalry / U.S.A." Adams stands in uniform next to a wire chair where his hat is resting, the 9th Cavalry, Troop H badge clearly visible. 

Adams is listed as a recruit in Co. B of the 10th Cavalry on April 1890 in Fort Apache. By August 1897 he is listed as a private with Co. H in the 9th Cavalry stationed in Cinnabar, Montana "on detached service." It is unknown when Adams transferred from the 10th to the 9th. Fort Robinson, where this image was captured, was home to the 9th Cavalry from 1885 until 1898, serving as the regimental headquarters from 1887-1898.
