American Indians and Photography Before the Civil War

$7.50Price

During the 1840s and 1850s, St. Louis was a bustling center of trade. Tribal Nations regularly traveled through St. Louis to sign treaties, receive provisions, and trade for food, clothing and supplies. During these trips, Tribal leaders often took the time to have their photo taken. These photos provide an important visual history of Indigenous people during the age of Westward Expansion. Learn about these photos and the technology behind early photography in this presentation with Historian/Curator Nick Sacco.
