Biography/HistoryMoving thousands of soldiers across the prairie required hundreds of wagons to haul tents, clothes, food, feed for the horses, medicine, and ammunition. The horses that pulled the wagons required grain and hay in addition to what little food they could find on the prairie. This photograph shows only a small part of Sully's expedition in camp after the Battle of Killdeer Mountain.
