Plumb family
Captain Isaac Plumb, Jr. (1842-1866) served in Company A of the 61st New York Infantry of the Union Army during the Civil War from his enlistment in the fall of 1861 until his death at the Battle of Cold Harbor in 1864, and saw action at Fair Oaks, the Seven Days Battle, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, the Wilderness, and Cold Harbor. During his experience as a Union soldier, Plumb's attitudes towards politics, the War, the North and South, and slavery underwent enormous transformations, from wild patriotism, to bitterness, and finally to a more realistic patriotism. This collection documents the Civil War from the soldier's perspective as well as the home front, detailing the day-to-day life of a Union soldier, with vivid descriptions of camp life, marches, battles, aftermath of battles, upheaval of the ranks, morale issues, and disillusionment; and from the perspective of family and friends not involved in the fighting, but actively offering opinions of politics and military tactics, and expressing their fear and worry about their loved ones.

A number of the photographs include small figures, a device used by Hazeltine J.J. Reilly in some of their Yosemite scenes to give scale to the landscape. The introductory photograph entitled "Columbia River" portrays a group riding in a horse-drawn wagon.

Waite, Edward O.
Consists of twelve albumen photographs by Edward O. Waite documenting an annual hunting trip to Yellowstone National Park organized by Jerome C. Marble, president of the Worcester Excursion Car Company who was also a dealer in pharmaceuticals and chemicals and director of the Quinsigamond Bank. The photographs show views from Marble and his friends' travels from Massachusetts to the western United States in a deluxe Worcester rail car called the "Edwin Forrest." While most of the images show views from the rail car, one depicts a group of people at a camp called "Camp Marble." Marble's company rented luxuriously fitted rail cars for trips West, most often to wealthy settler hunting parties or sightseeing groups. The company went out of business in 1895.
