Placer County Museum's "A Grave Affair" exhibit featuring mourning and death related artifacts and equipment

On Oct. 6, 1897, Fred Bridgeman of Foresthill died. He had been shot accidentally just outside of Foresthill on Aug. 30 by Louis Sellier when Seller mistook Bridgeman for a deer. The bullet tore through his left thigh, shattering the femur. Dr. Schnabel and Dr. Todd amputated his leg, and this led to a brief rally of his health, but after a few days, he became weak. His health declined until his death. Bridgeman characterized the incident as an accident and never blamed Sellier for his fatal injury. He is buried in the Old Auburn Cemetery.

Fred Bridgeman was a veteran of the Civil War, fighting for New York’s 22nd Infantry Regiment. He fought at the Second Battle of Bull Run, Antietam and Fredericksburg. As a veteran of that bloody conflict, Bridgeman was quite familiar with death and witnessed how mourning practices evolved during the Civil War. To learn more about death and mourning in the Victorian era through the mid-20th century, please visit our exhibit “A Grave Affair” in the Treasury of the Placer County Museum on the first floor of the Historic Courthouse in Auburn. The museum is open every day except holidays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
