In 1836, a Comanche raiding party took Cynthia Ann Parker from her family. Over the following years, she became wife to a Comanche chief and mother to children, including Quanah Parker, the last Comanche chief. After Texas Rangers took Cynthia Ann back, Quanah became one of the most important Comanche leaders in both war and peace. This photo exhibit tells this story of their lives caught between two different worlds.
