    "As depicted, rarely did the Indians allow Cavalry to get close enough to use their dreaded sabres. This northern plains warrior has used two Cavalry carbine slings laced together to hold his bear-skin on this fleet pony. The bear, as further indicated by the necklace and shield symbol, is his 'Good Medicine' sign. The trooper and his mount, sparing nothing to avenge their fallen comrades, are about to deal out their on 'Medicine.' The period is circa 1872, as indicated by the Cavalry uniform, weapons and horse equipment."
