Haynes, The Journal

by Michael Haynes

each of the sergeants of the expedition was required to keep a journal recording the day’s events and activities. This scene depicts a typical camp somewhere along the river in Missouri. As a few of the men enjoy the music of Pierre Cruzatte's fiddle after a long day's work, Sgt. Ordway begins writing in his journal. What a tedious chore this must have seemed to the sergeants after each exhausting day, but their diligence has given us a record that is a priceless look into their westward trek.

Copies of this print are available direct from the artist.
