A milestone

Last night I reached 200 featured credits. Three featured picture candidates at English Wikipedia got promoted, bringing the total to 201.

Number two hundred was the Wounded Knee aftermath. Currently I am corresponding with the staff at the Library of Congress about the find: restoration revealed four human bodies in the foreground which had been not been mentioned in bibliographic notes and were nearly invisible in the faded original print. Am looking to make contact with a historian who specializes in the area.

Congrats Durova. That's an amazing achievement -- really, it's kind of mind-boggling to think about how much time that must have taken.

Here's to another 200! Right? ;)
