Here for your perusal is a collectible photograph of Colonel E. C. Boudinot. It was created between 1860 and 1865.

Elias Cornelius Boudinot was a member of the Arkansas secession convention, a Colonel in the in the Civil War (Confederate), and a representative in the Confederate Congress. During the Civil War, he fought for the Confederate Army, under his uncle, Indian General Stand Watie. Boudinot reached the rank of lieutenant colonel. In 1863, he was a member of the Confederate Congress, representing the Cherokee Indians. After the Civil War, Boudinot started a tobacco factory, hoping to take advantage of tax immunities promised in the 1866 treaty between the United States and the Cherokees. Later regulators denied that the treaty provided tax relief, and seized the factory for nonpayment of taxes. In 1871, the United States Supreme Court ruled against Boudinot.
