Carte de visite of a Boston Lancer, full-standing, Horton of Boston backmark. Fine condition. The Lancers were organized on 31 October 1836 at the request of Governor Edward Everett and organized as a light cavalry militia troop. The Lancers were created to provide an armed escort for the governor as well as protect Massachusetts against invasion and insurrection. The National Lancers fought in the American Civil War as a part of the Army of the Potomac, and took part in campaigns in South Carolina, Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania. During the Boston Draft Riot in July 1863, the National Lancers prevented rioters from seizing the armory of the Boston Light Artillery.
