Description:
Described in Vol. II, p. 57. Caption from Truettner catalog of Catlin's Indian Gallery. Catlin's descriptions of Manners & Customs Plate 157 (Gallery No. 488), Plate 158 (Gallery No. 461), Plate 160 (Gallery No. 499), Plate 161 (Gallery No. 500), and Plate 162 (Gallery No. 501) as well as Portfolio Plate 3 (Gallery No. 499) and Plate 4 (Gallery No. 501) fall within his description of a location between the "False Washita" and the Comanche Village (Vol. II, p. 53, 57). According to Truettner (Truettner, 1979, p. 31), the Comanche Village was located at the base of the Wichita Mountains. This appears to be in the vicinity of Fort Sill and between the Washita and Red Rivers. What Catlin Calls the False Washita may be what is now called the Clear Boggy Creek or River which parallels the Washita to the east. While the events depicted in the above plates did not occur in the same place, they have been located on the map at a single image site a little north of the Comanche Village and east of the Washita River. It is designated Southern Great Plains. Entry from Catlin's 1848 catalog reads, "Dragoons on the March, and a band of Buffalo breaking through their ranks, in Texas, 1835." Originally sketched in 1834 and painted in the period 1834-1835 (Truettner, 1979, p. 276).
