A wonderful historic photograph of three Native American Sioux Chiefs - Chief “Two Lance,” Chief “Flying Hawk,” and Chief “Frank Good Lance (Battle of Wounded Knee), with these names inscribed under each individual, and a handwritten caption across the top “Three Chiefs Who Fought in the Custer Battle”. The back of the photograph shows a partially legible inscription “Survivors of the Battle of..??..August 5, 1873”. Custer and the 7th US Cavalry had their first encounter with the Sioux on August 4, 1873 at the Battle of Honsinger Bluff near the Tongue and Yellowstone Rivers near present day Miles City, Montana.
The photograph is probably circa 1900 and is in good overall condition, with some losses and creases along the right border, light staining, and expected wear from age and use. It is presented in a hard plastic sleeve. This photograph was previously sold at a Butterfield & Butterfield Auction on 4-4-95, Lot 219. Dimensions: 7 ⅜” h x 12” w. A great piece of American Indian Wars history!
