The Fording Place

by John Buxton

It is summer in Iroquois territory and the tribe has set up their temporary camp on the banks of a river, where the fish and game are plentiful. At the end of the season the men and women will pack up their huts and move to higher ground, where the winter floods will not reach them.

Content that their work in the camp is done, a group of men set out across the river to hunt and continue the day's chores. Buxton's realistic depictions of everyday life in the 18th century make thoughtful gifts to a history buff or historical art collector.

Sand Creek Memories

by Don Crowley

The Sand Creek Massacre of 1864 remains one of the most horrific events in the history of the United States. Under the pretext of defending the growing city of Denver, Colorado, United States troops, under the command of Colonel John Chivington, attacked a camp of peaceful Cheyenne. The majority of Cheyenne warriors had left on a hunt, but the American soldiers slaughtered every Native American they could find, including women, the elderly and children. Chivington reported that between five and six hundred warriors were killed; in truth, about 53 men and over a hundred women and children were murdered. The battle has remained an ugly scar on the face of the southwest United States.

The Cheyenne subject of Don Crowley's Sand Creek Memories pays tribute to the memory of his fallen tribesmen. This moving portrait is a memorial to the departed and a plea for peace, that we may not make the same mistake in allowing such atrocities again.
