    Red Horned Bull: An Original Cabinet Photo of this Ogalala Warrior Wounded in the Battle of Little Bighorn. Also known as Red Horn Buffalo, he was shot in the face in the attack on Major Reno's troops and fell into the Little Big Horn River. Pulled unconscious from the river, he survived the battle, and wore a rawhide brace on his jaw for many months. Red Horned Bull lived to a ripe old age, dying at Pine Ridge Reservation in 1920. Original photos of the Indian participants in the Battle of Little Bighorn are rare, especially one like this showing him in full traditional garb, mounted, and carrying lance and war shield. Vintage pencil identification on verso. Photo itself is in excellent condition. Two tape marks and minor wear on mount. 4.125" x 6.375".
