    Description

    Chief Low Dog: An Original D. F. Barry Photo. Low Dog was part of Chief Gall's band, and was among the most notorious Sioux leaders: famous for wounding a mail carrier, pegging him to the ground and setting fire to the grass around him. Low Dog surrendered with Gall in 1880, but at the fort kept to himself, 'fearing some white man might take a shot at him". Barry writes, "He had a very wicked face...In the Custer fight he worked hard to get credit for killing so many soldiers. At the agency...he was pointed out to the whites as a real bad Indian".

    In Barry's original folder with bio on verso. Excellent condition, with some surface flaking near the edge of the photo, covered by the mat. Photo itself is 5.125" x 6.75".
