The American West was dramatically reconstituted in the eighty years between the Mexican War and the passage of the Indian Citizenship Act in 1924. This exhibition tells the story of these changes through more than a hundred portrait photographs of the defining figures of this period. It will be shown at the San Diego Historical Society, California, from March 12 through June 6, 2010, and at the Gilcrease Museum, Tulsa, Oklahoma, from October 9, 2010, to January 2, 2011.
