Brule Delegation of 1872

Someone must have thought he could sell more photographs by putting all this false information on that first picture. The only correct name is that of Julius Meyer!

I assume the photo must have been made in 1872, because the Indians here all appear part of that famous delegation to Washington in 1872, photographed by Alexander Gardner. From left to right: Julius Meyer, The-One-Who-Runs-the-Tiger, Bald Eagle, Gassy. (All four Indians were part of the Brule Sioux delegation.)
