    AMAZING BARRY PHOTOGRAPH OF INDIAN "WAR PARTY" COUNCIL WITH SITTING BULL'S TRIBE. Large (9.25" x 7.5") albumen image of approximately 50 Indian chiefs and tribal elders gathered beneath a massive open teepee to discuss pressing matters of concern to the various tribal groups represented. At center sits a man in a white shirt with a feather in his hair purported to be Sitting Bull, although we cannot confirm this. The image suffers some foxing and spotting at upper left and along upper edge, but these do not detract from the powerful central image. At lower right foreground, one brave stares intently at Barry as he takes the photograph. This impressive image is affixed to Barry's Bismarck photographer's mount with gilt edging. "War Party" embossed at lower center of image. Some wear to mount corners, but this does not diminish the powerful intent inherent in this photograph. Rare and highly desirable!
