Hi Dietmar Thanks for your kind response. The Guy second from left is probably Dutchy. In fact the photagrapher Burge identifies him as "Dutch" He became one of Crooks favorite scouts and there is a well known photo of Dutchy and Crook and Alchese with General Crooks favorite mule named "Apache". In fact, according to history Dutchy shot and killed the the Mexican who shot Capt Crawford even though Capt Crawford was waving a flag of truce. Unfortunately, Dutchy had a short temper, was shipped off East with the rest of the Chiricahuas, and was killed in a drunken row with soldiers, in either Fla or Alabama. As to why Dutchy is in chains in the photo, again he was known to have a "short temper"
Hi redpaint, it's not that we do not want to join the discussions, but for us Europeans/Germans/Russians the sources are limited. Perhaps the well is currently dry. It is now up to the NDN to give new facts or topics into the group, which can be discussed. I am firmly convinced that by and by all come back for the exchange of ideas/thought. CU soon. Gregor
My freind, Gregor, don't be afraid of some of these "Nde" who post on this site who use terms like "gringo" and "white eye". Why they weren't banned from this site a long time ago baffles me, with their racists attitudes. Ask Deitmar, she is a mod and seems to be impartial, she seems to be a great person. Again to respect someone is good, to be indimidated by these so called "nde" for posting your comments on photos is quite another. Post away! You and I both know the well has not gone dry. By the way, maybe Naiches 2 will weigh in on this photo! Don't be intimidated by NDE.
