About this collection

The Florence-Lauderdale Public Library is pleased to have partnered with the Alabama Historical Commission to digitally preserve a number of rare images and documents from Pond Spring, the General Joseph Wheeler Home. Among the items included in this collection are photographs of Wheeler riding ahead of his men on parade at the Philadelphia Peace Jubilee at the end of the Spanish-American War, three rare letters, and dozens of stereo card images, some showing Wheeler posing with the high command of the United States cavalry forces in Cuba, including future president of the United States and Rough Rider Theodore Roosevelt. There are also a number of intimate family portraits, including one of Wheeler and his daughter Annie, called Comrades by Annie.
