(1816 - 1897)

commander of Fort Fred Steele from October, 1871 until September, 1873; was born an aristocrat in Tours, France, but came to America as a soldier of fortune to fight in the Civil War. Commissioned as Colonel in 31st Infantry, he commanded Fort Stevenson on the Upper Missouri until taking charge of Fort Fred Steele. A Renaissance man, this officer vividly illustrated and wrote of his adventures.
"On the 26th of December, while riding along a line of recruites (sic) arrived the day before at his Post, my horse reared so violently that he fell back on me, then kicking, struggling and finally turning completely over while I was under him. By a most extraordinary chance, I escaped without any limb or bone broken." - Telegram, sent January 1st, 1872, to Department of the Platte, Omaha, Nebraska, from R. de Trobraind, Commander
