Native Warriors and Battles

At the Military and Historical Image Bank, I discovered several renderings of Native people, mostly in military context.

The first group shows 6 images, including the Battle of Oriskany, about which I had just been reading.  The Battle of Oriskany was one of the bloodiest battles of the Revolutionary War wherein the Six Nations Indians fought with the Loyalists against the Patriots and the Oneida Indians near Fort Stanwick, New York.  This division of loyalty caused a significant rift within the Indian nation.

This second group is the French and Indian War and includes another Native warrior not includes on the Native page.

I hope you enjoy the photos.  We can’t visit our ancestors today, but being able to view how they dressed and look at paintings and renditions of historically accurate Indians, combined with history, help us to connect with them in their life and times.  Enjoy.

Hat tip to Paul for this resource.

    In about one week I’ll be posting an article about the Code-talkers of WWII, do you have any posts regarding that subject? And if so, would you agree to having me copy info?
