Description B/W print, mounted on yellow cardboard. The print is an image of a woodcut, showing a scene described in the associated printed text. Printed text says "Indians. Nov. 1817.

McKrimmon was Ransomed to the Spaniards and Later Liberated by the Americans at St. Marks. After Hillshago was Hanged, His Family, Along with Other Starving Indians, Turned Themselves Over to the Americans at St. Marks. When McKrimmon Learned that his Benefactress was Among the Captives He Offered Himself to Her in Marriage. "But Milly Would Not Consent to Become His Wife as a Consideration of Having Saved His Life"" . Also, "Source: Trumbull's History of the Discovery of America. 1828. Copied: 12/74 PA. Neg: 1974

The photograph's subject and source are identified by the typed text on the cardboard, to the left of the photograph. Appears to have been produced this way by a large institution of archival material, because a stamp on the back says "Reproduced from the State Photographic Archives, Stozier Library, FSU" in order to fulfill a request for a copy of one of their documents.
