Harriet Tubman With Rifle Picture

I am looking for a public domain copy for my book, and not having much luck finding one that is clearly in the public domain.

Interesting that even the picture listed in the Library of Congress may not be public domain. Even more interesting that the image is described, but has not been digitized so it can't even be seen.

Pretty much any work (other than sound recordings) created and published in the U.S. before 1923 is in the public domain in the U.S. It's a little more complicated for rights abroad, but something from 1865 is highly unlikely to be still under copyright anywhere in the world.

Much more discussion at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Public_domain which takes such things seriously and in bloody-minded detail.
