— Officers Row —Until the late 19th century, the U. S. Army awarded sales commissions to civilian traders, known as sutlers. Each post or regiment was authorized to appoint one. Described as "a combination of saloon keeper and general store operator," the sutlers supplied troops with goods and food to supplement army rations.
