BIDGOOD, Amiron E. Pvt.
b. 07/13/1848,
1st. Michigan Cavalry
Alternate Name Amiron E./Birdgood

Amiron E. Bidgood, postmaster of Springdale, Stevens county, is a veteran soldier with a war record second, probably, to no other man in the state.

Enlisted, July 13, 1863, under Captain Clipperton. From Detroit he went to Camp Remount, near Alexandria, Virginia, and from there he joined his regiment in the field.
He participated in the battles of Trevallian
Station, Culpeper, and various skirmishes in the Shenandoah Valley, under General George A. Custer, the victim of the Little Big Horn massacre in 1876.
He was mustered out of the volunteer service at Camp Douglas, Salt Lake, March 10, 1866.

Returning to Illinois he worked on a farm until january 23, 1867, and then enlisted in the regular Army, and was assigned to Company F., Thirty-sixth United States
Infantry.

In 1878 he served on the plains against the Indians, and was stationed at Fort Bridger and Fort Steel. Discharged January 23, 1870, he re-enlisted in the regular service, again enlisted in 1876 and was finally mustered out at Fort Spokane in 1881.

Mr. Bidgood then located a homestead in Stevens county where he has lived ever since. Politically he is a Republican, but the first opportunity afforded him to vote was after he had left the army, when he cast his first vote for President Harrison.

Fraternally he is a member of the G.A.R., the Order of Washington, and the K.O.T.M. He was appointed postmaster of Springdale April 1, 1901, which position he still holds.
