Today Sinte stepped out of a 150 year old-letter via the voice of her great-granddaughter, Loretta, who commented on an 1863 letter written by U.S. Army Lieutenant James Gorman.
Scroll down to the comments and watch Sinte’s story unfold as J. R. Brown biographer, Nancy Goodman contributes the documentary sources on Sinte she found. Then Loretta shares Sinte’s family’s story.
Since this is a lovely example, it bears repeating: Thank you to everyone who so generously contributes stories and information, publicly in comments, and privately via email. This corner of the research world is richer because you share.
