Great Old Pictures

Because of a number if reasons, maybe foremost my heritage, I love to look at old photographs of the West. I thought I would share these photos as they are classic examples of the old West, late 1800's time period, and also represent icons of that era: The Custer debacle which hastened the defeat of the plains Indian Nations, as well as influenced Indian policy for some time afterward; A view of a Lakota (Sioux) Indian encampment; a photograph of U.S. Army Calvary Scouts; and, a photograph that has come to represent of the American Cowboy.
