About this Exploration:
On September 1, 1861, Arad Mann started his military career by joining the Twenty-Sixth Illinois Volunteer Infantry. In the four years he served with them he climbed the ranks from hospital steward to assistant surgeon. Mann then joined the regular U.S. Army as assistant surgeon in the Spring of 1866. After accompanying General Custer and the Seventh Calvary to Yellowstone and the Black Hills he immediately telegraphed his resignation once he was ordered out on Custer's fatal expedition in 1875.
On September 2, 1875 he married Eleanor Eads, cousin of Capt. J. B. Eads. Dr. Mann practiced medicine in Chicago for three years before coming to Toronto and continuing with his profession.
He is buried at Toronto Cemetery.
