Antique black and white print published in Harper's Weekly on July 22, 1876. This page shows images from the The Great Sioux War of 1876, also known as the Black Hills War. This was a series of battles and negotiations which occurred in 1876 and 1877 between the Lakota Sioux, Northern Cheyenne, and the United States. The cause of the war was the desire of the U.S. government to obtain ownership of the Black Hills. Images include: Massacre Monument; Rosebud River, from the North Side of the Yellowstone; Crooks Fight on Tongue River, June 9; Crooks Supply Camp, on Tongue River, Mouth of Prairie-Dog Creek; Fort Fetterman. Can be hand colored by our professional colorist for an additional charge. Text on back is slightly visible through the page. Overall good to very good antique condition with some minor stains, edge wear, and slight creases in the paper. Should look good if framed. Page dimensions are approx. 16.25 x 11 inches. Note: any "rainbows" or strange patterns in the image are called moire pattern- caused by taking a digital photo or scan of the many parallel lines in the print- these are not in the print and we can try to take more photos if you are concerned.
