York.Sarony, Major & Knapp Lith., New York, Sarony, Major & Knapp, 449 Broadway, circa 1859. Print showing a Native American man, possibly a chief, full-length portrait, standing, facing right, holding a spear in left hand; in the background are the teepees of a Native village during an assault on the village – Library of Congress


I noticed that you posted a broadside of the Old Sachem on your website (see above). I don’t know if I shared this with you, but it is a 1880-90s painting on board made from the broadside. It came from a on old hunting camp in PA, and I have had it for a little over 10 years. It is a really cool country piece that has crossover appeal into the folk art market. Anyways, just thought you may like it!
