Surrender of Chief Joseph

This painting of Chief Joseph's surrender was made by the American artist Frederic Remington sometime in the late 1880s. As chief of the Nez Percé Indians he led his people on a more than 1,000 mile journey while being pursued by the U.S. army. In his eloquent surrender speech Joseph said: "I am tired. My heart is sick and sad. From where the sun now stands, I will fight no more forever."
