IDENTIFIED INDIAN CHIEF DAGUERREOTYPE - I can just about guarantee that this opportunity will never come again! This is a 1/6 plate (approx. 2-3/4" x 3-1/2") c-1840-1850 daguerreotype of Chief David Wawanosh of the Sarnia, Ontario, Canada Chippewas (opposite Port Huron, Michigan across the St. Clair River). Included is 3/4 of his burial notice. He was the son of Chief Joshua Wawanosh and brother to William Wawanosh (who succeeded David as Chief). There are photos from the 1860's of Chief David on the internet and there is absolutely no question that these are the same person - only with about 20 years more on him. He graduated from the 1845 class at Albion College in Albion, Michigan. This college began in 1835 as an instituion that taught Native Americans and settlers. My guess is that the dag was taken after graduating from Albion and before succeeding his father as Chief. I visited the Chippewa Burial Grounds in Sarnia to look for his grave and unfortunately the grounds are in a state of disrepair - stones broken, knocked over, half buried and so weathered some were very tough to read. Did find one marker that was broken with the name in an arch. There was a visible 'CHI' then the break, and the end of the name 'OSH' but not sure if this was his. Found other Wawanosh markers strewn through the old part of the cemetery.

CDV - POSSIBLE 6TH WISCONSIN - IRON BRIGADE - Looking on the hat with a glass (may be a bit of wishful thinking) but sure looks like the numeral '6' to me. Perhaps the 6th Wisconsin of the Iron Brigade? Image is actually an albumen taken from a tintype as was a common practice for duplicating a tintype. The matting impression can be seen in the image. Proof of the 6th would make the value of this triple! Good research project.

On reverse in period ink is "View No. 7" and very lightly in pencil "upper entrance to / Bloody Pocket". This site was the continuation of the Wounded Knee Campaign ending in the year 1891. Fantastic image of an extremely important Indian War battle - actually this battle of Bloody Pocket, a.k.a. The Drexel Mission Fight was considered the last battle of the Indian Wars.
