Tappan, a civilian artist, accompanied the Missouri Mounted Volunteers from Fort Kearny on the Missouri River (at present Nebraska City) to a site on the central Platte River, where they began construction of a new fort. His duties included making drawings and collections to illustrate the botanical, zoological, and geographical features of the country. (Courtesy of Ellen F. Tappan)
