Sitting Bull. Otterspool Prom.

Well it’s so big it’s hard to miss, But I don’t know any thing about this!   Although I did hear a story (true? false?) on Radio Merseyside,  this came up as a question to Frank Carlyle, Liverpool historian extraordinaire . Frank told a tale from 1901 when Wild Bill Hickock. Big Chief Sitting Bull, Annie (get your gun) Oakley & CO came to Liverpool, Wavertree Park to give a performance of their riding/shooting skills. Now I know they performed in Britain , in front of Royalty at a London Venue sometime in the past . But is this the missing Link to the mystery of what is this Statue doing on Otterspool Prom?  Must get in touch with Frank and Radio Merseyside.

    I’m assuming the account is false. My assumption is based on the fact that Chief Sitting Bull of the Hunkpapa Lakota was murdered a full 11 years prior, in 1890.

    My sister recently did an ancestry search and found that my grandmothers grandfather was Hercules Lambert, grandson of the great Tatanka-Iyotanka ~ Sitting Bull. I’m proud to have learned he was my great great great great Grandfather.
