I'd like to ask if anyone has details about the above image (published in "Promise: Bozeman's Trail to Destiny" by S. Chapman - I added the watermark because I'm not sure about its copyright status, and I'm ready to remove it, in case of violations) as year, fphotographer and so on.
It would be also great to have further info about Wild Hog, especially the 1860-70 and the Pine Ridge years (for this last period, I've only a few lines in Olson's Red Cloud and the Sioux Problem, reporting Wild Hog's "progressive" and "friendly" attitude, plus his signing the 1888 land agreement).
For the 1879 trial following the Cheyenne outbreak at Fort Robinson, I'd recommend an excellent article by Barry Johnson, "Cheyennes in Court: an Aftermath of the Dull Knife Outbreak of 1878" (thanks again to Kingsley and Grahame for pointing me out to it).
Thanks to everybody!
