1858 – She refused to give up her seat or ride in the “colored” section of a segregated trolley car in Philadelphia (100 years before Rosa Parks) and wrote one her most famous poems, “Bury Me In A Free Land,” when she got very sick while on a lecturing tour.

This picture is of Whirling Horse. I consider this photograph to be a classic, and shows the man with full head dress, buckskin clothing, and blanket. It is believed that Whirling Horse was a member of a Wild West Show, possibly Buffalo Bill Cody's. So, in looking at the picture we must wonder whether this is the way he looked as a traditional Indian person, or whether this is how Buffalo Bill told him he should dress for the show.
