Large Albumen depicting a dead body in the foreground with the burial detail and their wagon in the background, 7-3/4"x6", identified in negative "Birds Eye View of Battlefield at Wounded Knee S.D. looking North. Northwestern Photo. Co. Chadron Neb. No.4." Attributed to George Trager. c. 1890. No backmark. Crease at top right corner, else very good condition. More than 200 Lakota Sioux men, women, and children were killed in this fierce battle. Reaction to the battle was generally favorable among the American public. The U.S. Army investigation at the time exonerated the officer in charge of any wrongdoing and 20 Congressional Medals of Honor were awarded to participants. History hasn't been so kind though, and today, many feel that this incident was one of the most grievous atrocities in United States history.
