Congratulations on being featured in the Fine Art America Group "Images That Excite You!"

Dawn you historical work is so imporetant please keep on creating

Yes, Duncan, this obviously is based on an old print, not a historical photo as are my other vignettes from the River Mural! A photographer would have to be quite a time traveller to snap this picture! The action depicted is very real to the history of this area, however, and many hair-raising accounts of those violent days survive, including that of a woman stage passenger who loaded firearms for the men as they fended off angry warriors.

Looks like an Americanized, Courier Imperial, by A. Shreyer.
