Discovering History through a Photograph: One Picture, Eight People, and the Unexpected Stories of American Life.

A professor of history at Princeton University examines a single photograph made by Alexander Gardner during the Ft. Laramie Treaty negotiations of 1868.  A picture may show us what’s in the frame, but it also leads us to unexpected places. As the photo’s subjects walk into the picture frame and then walk away, they carry with them an astonishing set of stories that extends well beyond Indian Country to encompass all of the drama of nineteenth-century American life.
