Beautiful photos, I find the ones of the Native Americans depressing as hell. Also love the bullshit American Exceptionalism, meritocratic attitude in the comments on the page. Was the term "squaw" originally on the photos or added in by the Denver Post??? That word is a slur.
Belas fotos da conquista do oeste americano.

Outstanding pics of frontier life in the old west (1880s-1890s)
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, documenting many aspects of frontier life's hunting, mining, western town landscapes and white settlers' relationships with Native Americans. Most of his work is centered on Deadwood in the late 1880s and 1890s. He is most often sited for his photographs in the aftermath of the Wounded Knee Massacre on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation...
