Robert McGee…

Robert McGee was scalped at the age of 13 by Native Americans while in a wagon train on the Santa Fe trail near Learned, Kansas.

Thankfully, he was not conscious as it was occurring. Unfortunately, he would be the only survivor of the raid.

This photograph was taken 25 years after the incident. He spent most of his life with his skull exposed to the elements.
