This is an original lithograph print made from a drawing by an unknown artist, featured in Harper's Weekly Magazine, in 1876. The scene depicts a group of white settlers, probably part of a Wagon Train, being attacked by a group of Indians on horseback.  The shocked looks on the two settlers in the foreground appear to be looking at the viewer, asking for help.

There is an article written about this scene below the picture. A brief excerpt:  "We have taught the Indians to regard the whites as enemies. We have cheated, despoiled, and demoralized them, and now affect to be surprised when they turn upon us, and defend the integrity of their lands with all the brutality and cruely of savage warfare."

Harper's Weekly:  Harper's Magazine was a weekly magazine which debuted in June of 1850.  Although the earliest issues consisted largely of material that had already been published in England, the magazine soon began to print the work of American artists and writers - among them Horatio Alger, Stephen A. Douglas, Theodore Dreiser, Horace Greeley, Winslow Homer, Jack London, John Muir, Frederick Remmington, and Mark Twain.

Condition: This print is in A condition.
