Shabbona (1775–1859)

Shabbona wikipedia entry.
This man was an Ottawa tribe member who became a chief within the Potawatomi tribe in Illinois during the 19th century.
It's rare to see a photo of someone who fought alongside Tecumseh at the Thames and took part in the Red Bird Rising (1815) and the Black Hawk War (1832).
