Franklin Dick's perspective of important historical events include the early Camp Jackson incident when he was Captain Nathaniel Lyon's assistant adjutant general, and when he served as Missouri's provost marshal general under Major General Samuel Curtis. After the war, Franklin Dick practiced law with Montgomery Blair, President Lincoln's postmaster general.
