Hide Profile

Joseph A. Cody of Kansas served as a private in the Frontier Guard and as U.S. Indian agent at the Upper Platte Agency in Nebraska Territory, May 14, 1861 - Apr. 14, 1862.

As a member of the Frontier Guard, a volunteer company commanded by Gen. James H. Lane and composed of men from Kansas and Illinois, Cody, in the spring of 1861, protected Lincoln at the White House in the absence of regular troops. It is likely that Cody obtained his Indian agent appointment as a result of this brief interlude in Washington.
