War Dance

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“Camp life in the West. During one of the pauses in the active part of the Missouri campaign our special artist sent us some sketches which belong more to the romance of war than its struggle. Among them is a most characteristic scene in which two phases of civilization meet. We allude to the sketch where the Indian warriors are giving a war dance by firelight in the presence of the officers and soldiers of General Asboth’s division. Sad and suggestive spectacle! Pagans and Christians traveling as companions on the same war path."— Frank Leslie, 1896
