Campaign songs, as sung by the National Quartette

Campaign songs, as sung by the National Quartette
Date: 1892
This volume of campaign songs includes four pieces that vividly express the major beliefs of the Populist Party. The first song, "For Trampling on the Grass," criticizes the businessmen and bankers who were trampling on the rights of the common people. The second song, "The Republican's Lament," pokes fun at the Republicans who were no longer able to dominate the Populists now that "they have ceased to head our whippings, and have ceased to take our word." The third song, "The Wall Street Badge" describes how the government, according to the Populists, was now in the hands of Wall Street. The final song, "One of His Legs is Longer Than It Really Ought to Be," provides a comic perspective on some of the upcoming elections, including the race between Chester I. Long and "Sockless Jerry" Simpson.

E. H. Funston home in Allen County, Kansas
Date: Between 1940 and 1968
Multiple images of the Edward Hogue Funston home, located in Allen County, Kansas. The father of General Fred Funston was born at Donnelsville, Clark County, Ohio, on September 16, 1836, and married Ann Eliza Mitchell in September 1861. He served throughout the Civil War in the Sixteenth Ohio Battery. He moved his family to Kansas in December 1867 where he established a prosperous, diversified farm just north of Iola. E. H. Funston was an officer in the Kansas State Agricultural Society and the State Board of Agriculture and served in Kansas House of Representatives (1873-1875) and the Kansas Senate (1881-1885), before winning election to the U.S. Congress in 1884. Funston expressed interest in (and made some effort to obtain) the Republican nomination for governor and congressman from the second district and continued to use his powerful voice to speak out on issues of interest to him and many of his Allen county neighbors until his death on September 10, 1911.

Date: Between 1913 and 1914
This is a portrait of General Frederick Funston. Funston was appointed colonel of the 20th Kansas Infantry and was soon sent to the Philippine Islands. On February 4, 1899, the insurrection broke out. Because of his leadership, Funston was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor and promoted to the rank of Brigadier General Volunteers. Although the 20th Kansas served only a year, Funston returned to the Philippines in late December, 1899. He personally led the small troop of American soldiers and Macabebe scouts in the capture of the famed Filipino insurrectionist, Emilio Aguinaldo. Criticized by some for the unethical posing as a spy to bring about the capture, Funston was nevertheless awarded a commission as a Brigadier General, Regular Army, June, 1901. At the time, Funston was 35 years old and the youngest general in the army. In 1906 he did much to keep law and order in San Francisco and to provide relief to sufferers of the great earthquake. In 1914 he was in command of American troops on the Texas border during the difficulties with Pancho Villa. Future general, John J. Pershing, was one of his subordinates. On November 17, 1914, Funston was made a Major General. A heart attack took the life of the 51-year-old general on February 19, 1917.

Frederick Funston
Date: between 1905 and 1908
A portrait of General Frederick Funston, who grew up in Iola, Kansas, and became one of America's most famous military figures. Because of his height and weight, Funston failed an admissions test to the United States Military Academy in 1884. He enrolled and attended the University of Kansas from 1885 to 1888 but did not graduate. While there he joined the Phi Delta Theta fraternity and became friends with future Pulitzer Prize winner William Allen White. After leaving the university, he worked as a trainman for the Santa Fe Railway and in 1890, took a reporter's job in Kansas City. After one year reporting the news, Funston moved into more scientific exploration, focusing primarily on botany. In the early 1890s, he participated in scientific expeditions in the Dakota Badlands, Death Valley, and in Alaska along the Klondike and Yukon Rivers. In 1896 he joined forces of Cubans who were fighting for independence from Spain. He was immediately promoted to captain of an artillery unit. Funston served eighteen months under Generals Maximo Gomez, Calixto Garcia, and others. During this time he was wounded three times, lost seventeen horses, and was captured once. Shortly after returning home, Kansas Governor Leedy appointed Funston colonel of the 20th Kansas Infantry, which was soon sent to the Philippine Islands. On February 4, 1899, the insurrection broke out. Because of his leadership Funston was promoted to brigadier general of volunteers and in 1901 was given that rank in the regular army where he spent the rest of his life. In 1906 he did much to keep law and order in San Francisco and to provide relief to sufferers of the great earthquake. In 1914 he was in command of American troops on the Texas border during the difficulties with Pancho Villa. Future general, John J. Pershing, was one of his subordinates. On November 17, 1914 Funston was made a major general. A heart attack took the life of the 51-year-old general on February 19, 1917. His college friend, William Allen White, called him "one of the most colorful figures in the American army from the day of Washington on down."
