Fred W. Loring and his Mule Evil Merodach. Killed by the Apaches, Arizona Territory, 1871.

Fred Loring was a member of the Wheeler Expedition that explored the Southwest after the Civil War. This photo was taken just 48 hours before Fred was killed by Apache Indians in an attack on the stagecoach he was riding in. Fred was traveling from Prescott, Arizona to Bernardino, California and eventually to his home in the East. He served as a general assistant and correspondent for the expedition. Timothy H. O’Sullivan, photographer.
