    2. Pictures in the 1800’s took a long time to take so they would have people hold a pose that was comfortable. I couldn’t imagine trying to smile for an hour. lol

    4. In contests where losers die, Comanche is a survivor. Thousands of Cheyenne and Sioux were ‘winners’.

    6. Custer Massacre? Massacre is when a company of soldiers kills an entire village, not when a village turns the tide & kills armed men who should be ready to die based on their chosen profession…
