Drawings by Northern Cheyenne Indians

Drawings by Northern Cheyenne Indians
Creator: Northern Cheyenne
Date: About May 1879
This small notebook contains drawings by Northern Cheyenne Indians who were confined in jail in Dodge City, Kansas, in 1879. The State of Kansas was trying the six Indians (Wild Hog, Run Fast, Frizzly Head, Young Man, Old Man, and Crow) for a murder committed the previous year. In September 1878, chiefs Dull Knife and Little Wolf left Indian Territory with some 300 Cheyenne bound for their homeland north of Kansas. Atrocities committed during the band's trek through the state prompted a severe response from authorities, culminating in a standoff in Nebraska. The so-called "Dull Knife Raid" of 1878 proved the last major conflict between whites and Indians in Kansas. These drawings are often called ledger art. Sallie Straughn of Denver, Colorado, donated the notebook to the Kansas Historical Society in 1922. Mrs. Straughn was matron of the Dodge City jail in 1878 during the Cheyenne's incarceration when her husband, John W. Straughn, was the Dodge City jailer. Within the notebook, the images are arranged like a flip book. Left-facing images are right side up, while right-facing images are upside down. To preserve this original arrangement, we show all pages from cover to cover, then turn the book over and present all pages cover to cover again. This preserves the relationship between the images and allows all images to be viewed right side up.

John Brown illustration used in Hinton's book, John Brown and His Men.
Creator: Hinton, Richard J . (Richard Josiah), 1830-1901
Date: 1854
A pen and ink sketch of John Brown. The illustration was used in Hinton's book, John Brown and His Men. John Brown Jr. said this is the best picture of his father. John Brown was born into a deeply religious family in Torrington, Connecticut, in 1800. Led by a father who was vehemently opposed to slavery, the family moved to northern Ohio when John was five, to a district that would become known for its antislavery views. During his first fifty years, Brown moved about the country, settling in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, and New York, and taking along his ever-growing family. (He would father twenty children.) Working at various times as a farmer, wool merchant, tanner, and land speculator, he never was finacially successful -- he even filed for bankruptcy when in his forties. His lack of funds, however, did not keep him from supporting causes he believed in. He participated in the Underground Railroad and, in 1851, helped establish the League of Gileadites, an organization that worked to protect escaped slaves from slave catchers. Despite his contributions to the antislavery cause, Brown did not emerge as a figure of major significance until 1855 after he followed five of his sons to the Kansas territory. There, he became the leader of antislavery guerillas and fought a proslavery attack against the antislavery town of Lawrence. The following year, in retribution for another attack, Brown went to a proslavery town and brutally killed five of its settlers. Brown and his sons would continue to fight in the territory and in Missouri for the rest of the year. Brown returned to the east and began to think more seriously about his plan for a war in Virginia against slavery. He sought money to fund an "army" he would lead. On October 16, 1859, he set his plan to action when he and 21 other men -- 5 blacks and 16 whites -- raided the federal arsenal at Harpers Ferry. Brown was wounded and quickly captured, and moved to Charlestown, Virginia, where he was tried and convicted of treason, and sentenced to death. He was hanged on December 2, 1859. Although initially shocked by Brown's exploits, many Northerners began to speak favorably of the militant abolitionist.
