Marshal Henry C. Seaman was also known as a staunch abolitionist and Major of the First Kansas Colored Infantry. He commanded an Expedition of the First Kansas Colored into Missouri in October 1862, whereby the expedition was the first engagement between African American Union soldiers and Confederates during the Civil War. Captain (his rank at the time) had dedicated his life to freedom, all honor to his name.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 139th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Rest In Peace
