Indians on a Bluff Surveying General Miles' Troops
Gift of William E. Weiss
When Charles M. Russell painted a history painting related to the exploration or settlement of the West, he often painted it with Indian subjects as the primary focus. This painting refers to one of the incidents in the Sioux wars of the period 1877-1879 when Nelson Miles pursued the Indians in Montana.
LLC C M Russell (skull), on verso: Typed, attached to back: Dear Sir- This picture represents the Indians coming around the bluff, looking down on General Miles': troops in camp in the valley on the opposite side of the river. The country is what is known as the bad lands in Montana, the Little Rockeys in the distance. The location is about one hundred miles below old Fort Benton on the Missouri River, and is a perfect representation of the country. Yours Resp., C.M. Russell (Signature in ink)
