Looking Back to 1917: Remembering the Indian Wars and Buffalo Bill

From the January 18, 2017, MidWeek (DeKalb County, Illinois) "Looking Back."

1917, 100 Years Ago.

"Mrs. Matilda Ambrosia, living on South Forth Street, told an interesting story to the Chronicle reporter yesterday.  It seems that in the early days Mrs. Ambrosia was an army nurse during the early Indian trouble and lived in Minnesota.

"She recalled vividly scenes of her early life when she came into contact with Buffalo Bill, William F. Cody, and that world renowned personage protected her on many occasions."
