OK, it was pointed out that I had used yesterday's picture before, and in fact had used it fairly recently. I really try to not re-use pictures, and try to give you a fresh old picture each day. Some times I do lose track of what I have shown. Also, I had not realized that I had done a Native American week fairly recently. So, I apologize for that.
Now, today's picture was taken in 1907. The picture was made by the Detroit Publishing Company. It shows a Assinaboine Indian named "Rattlesnake". I like it because he is on horseback,and pictured with a rifle. By 1907, the Indian wars were pretty much over, but the man is of an age that he probably lived through them.
