National Guard, Casualties, Tanya Lynn Blanding, 1967

Caption reads: "GUARD LEAVES, BUT SORROW STAYS- Some Michigan National Guard equipment rolls out of Detroit Tuesday after Civil Unrest subsided, but a woman weeps quietly as she heads for a funeral. Tanya Lynn Blanding, 4, was killed, apparently by a police or National Guard bullet, during the height of the burning, looting and killings last week. Her funeral was held Tuesday with some 200 mourners attending."

The Detroit Free Press won a Pulitzer Prize for its coverage of the events in Detroit.
