Description: Burying the dead at Wounded Knee. Workers stand in the mass grave. More corpses lie on the ground ready to be dropped into the grave. Soldiers look on, holding their rifles. One holds a shovel. This is one of the iconic photographs of the aftermath of the slaughter made by George Trager. His text and 1891 Copyright for his company “The Northwest Photo Co., Chadron, Nebraska” are printed in the image. This cabinet card is by Magy and Doughty, Norfolk, Nebraska. It has the look and clarity of a print close to the original, rather than an inferior copy.
Condition Report: Slightly light with wear on the lower mount corners.
