CDV - ABRAHAM LINCOLN - RARE 1865 VIEW - (O-104) E. & H.T. Anthony image actually only one of two images taken by a Treasury Department employee, Thomas Walker in February, 1865. This image is rarely seen and was only placed on stereo cards by Walker. Anthony obtained the image and made a limited amount in the CDV format. Of the two known this is the image that shows Lincoln to the waist where the other view ends at the top button of his coat. It is dated 1865. Lincoln is said to have had his hair cut in this short unruly way for a plaster life mask he was having done that same month (the one done in 1860 had apparently clung to his hair quite badly. The image is not without issues, having numerous stains and what appears to be an ink stain on the left margin but a darn rare image of Lincoln!!

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.

General Dix was born in 1798 and at the age of 14 fought in the 1812 Battle of Lundy's Lane. He coined the phrase "If anyone attempts to haul down the American flag, shoot him on the spot".

Photo has period ink ID on bottom "Enterense (sic) to upper end of "Bloody Pocket" Pine Ridge Reseveation (sic) S.D. 1891". 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.
