Two American Legends

This is a wonderful photograph of two American Legends . . . Buffalo Bill Cody, and Chief Sitting Bull. The picture was taken in 1885.

Sitting Bull is remembered as the great Sioux Chief who led the Native Americans at the Battle of Little Big Horn, and the defeat of General George Armstrong Custer. In later years, Sitting Bull exploited his fame and notoriety, and even worked in Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show for about four months. Sitting Bull was killed by Indian police on December 15, 1890. They feared that his alleged involvement in the Indian Ghost Dance Movement would lead to an Indian uprising.
