    Description

    Calamity Jane at Wild Bill Hickok's Gravesite, Deadwood, Dakota Territory. This photograph of Calamity Jane (Martha Jane Cannary-Burke) was taken from the original glass plate in the late 1890s. She is seen visiting Hickok's grave three years after his murder. She died in 1903, and in accordance with her dying wish, was buried next to Hickok. Mounted on card from Culver Pictures Inc. Measures approximately 3.5" x 3".

    Calamity Jane was a frontierswoman and professional scout whose autobiography makes many unconfirmed claims such as her association with Custer and her many Indian fights. In fact, she settled in Deadwood, Dakota Territory in 1876, arriving on Charlie Utter's wagon train, and became friendly with Hickok & Utter. She was infatuated and obsessed with Hickok's personality and life.

    Condition: Very fine.
