Forty Remarkable Native American Portraits by Frank A. Rinehart from 1899. - Flashbak Flashbak Frank Albert Rinehart was born in Lodi, Illinois in 1861. At some point in the 1870s he and his brother moved to Colorado and started working at a photography studio in Denver. When he was about twenty, Frank and his brother formed a partnership with the famous Western photographer William Henry Jackson. It was under Jackson that Rinehart perfected his, not inconsiderable professional photography skills. In 1898 Rinehart was commissioned to photograph the Indian Congress, which was held in conjunction with the Trans-Missisippi and International Exposition, and the Native American personalities who were attending it. The pictures are considered by many to be some of the best photographic representations of Native American leaders at the turn of the century. The dramatic beauty of these portraits is especially impressive as a departure from earlier, less sensitive photographs of Native Americans. Chief Wolf Robe, Cheyenne, 1899.

A People's History of the United States Summary Throughout A People's History of the United States, Howard Zinn blends critical approaches. The book's twenty-five chapters move from the European discovery of North America through the year 2000, evoking American history in a roughly chronological sequence. However, each chapter also has a topical focus, which allows Zinn to trace distinct but intersecting lines of historical influence. Zinn uses these intersections of time and topic as a combination of springboard and platform: he inserts extended meditations on key themes where they grow logically from the narrative of the people's history. For example, Zinn's first chapter discusses the general relationship between Europeans and Native Americans, but Zinn also analyzes larger-than-life historical figures—Christopher Columbus in this case—and their role in American history. Almost every chapter performs a set of interwoven functions central to Zinn's project: Chapter 1: Columbus, the Indians, and Human Progress

Sins of The Fathers: A Study of the Atlantic Traders 1441-1807", by James Pope-Hennessey, p. 174-5. The Other reasons for African slavery were, as we know, a certain number of anti-social crimes, such as adultery or theft. There was also, of course, slavery as the fruit of military conquest. But, until the Europeans came upon the scene, slaves were regarded inside Africa as useful and helpful people, whose ownership carried with it specific obligations - to feed, to clothe, to shelter and protect.
