Civil War Langlois

1920's Bandon Oregon parade featuring the 5 remaining Civil War Veterans. L>R. James Langlois, (1st Oregon Calvary) John Felter, Charles Blumenrother, Charles Rodgers, Clayton Zeek.

Yes, the very same James Langlois (1848-1936) who served as Cape Blanco Lighthouse keeper for 42 years- probably the longest continuous service on the West Coast. He was renown, esteemed and easily famous. Note: the town of Langlois was named for the family in general.
