JACKSON, WILLIAM HENRY. 1843-1942.

Jackson was a Civil War veteran and photographer's assistant who decided to take Horace Greeley's advice and go west. He traversed the Oregon Trail, painting and photographing along the way. On the verso he describes the scene: "Montezuma Canyon Aug. 31. 1875 / While prospecting we were met by a party of 15 or 20 Indians and escorted into their camps by forcing us all into a stampede--In the center in the lead is the pack mule with the photographic outfit."
