Hadji Ali as one of many signifiers ..

proper relevance; JL51393001 B
Hadji Ali was hired by the American army to train horses for desert duty in the Western Campaigns...  When he died in 1902, his attempts to turn the Americans into a camel riding outfit had failed and many of these Middle Eastern even toed ungulates had been let loose and charged the range on the great American desert...  Obviously, the horse won out.  Regardless, Lillian M. Gibson passed away and was laid to rest in the desert sun very close to Hadji's pyramid in western Arizona.  This is a photo taken by Mr. Crisman upon his visit to the area.  Some consider that it has meaning and relevance to his quest.
