American Elephants

A Glimpse of American History by The Elephant's Child

Between 1887 and 1892, John C.H. Grabill sent 188 photographs to the Library of Congress for copyright protection.  Grabill is known as a western photographer, who documented many areas of western life, Native Americans and western landscapes.  Much of his work was centered around Deadwood.  He was particularly known for his photographs in the aftermath of the Wounded Knee Massacre on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.

This is a fascinating glimpse of  western history. You could spend hours in this album, or revisit frequently.  Worth all the time you can spare.
