Summary

Thomas Millman, physician to the North American Boundary Commission, kept a diary of his experiences while in the West. On July 31, 1874, he wrote "we met with Boswell & Dawson & the photographers. They were getting the photo of some dead Indians. They appear to be Crow Indians killed last winter by the Pegans. About 20 altogether were riddled with bullet holes & every one scalped. Most of them had their shirts & every one had a gash in their side. Bodies were shrivelled up but skin pretty sound". Quelle: [1] Public-Domain
