The army, sent from Santa Fe to investigate French activity on the Plains, was attacked by Pawnee and Oto Indians. The more than seventeen-foot-long painting is the oldest known of a Nebraska scene. The exact reproduction was painted by Nebraska State Historical Society staff artist Curt Peacock. The original painting is now in Santa Fe in the Museum of New Mexico.
