Historical Image of the Day

This week, we will focus on images of race in early America, will I will define as before 1825. These images have had a definite 20th century bias, in no small part because there are just a lot more images. But I want to correct that, partly because I want to increase my image bank for putting together powerpoint presentations for my early U.S. history survey in the fall.
