Identification for Charging Thunder Photograph Corrected

The photograph previously titled “Whirling Hawk, Sioux Indian” under Photographs (wfc.img.69.236.64) identified the individual as Whirling Hawk. According to Michelle Delaney’s Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Warriors: A Photographic History by Gertrude K√§sebier, page 91, the individual is actually Charging Thunder. The title of the photograph has been updated to reflect this.
