Artist’s description of the painting
Label, Cowboy Artists of America

Describing this painting the artist wrote, “After the Sand Creek massacre in 1864 the Cheyenne fought back wreaking havoc along the Platte River closing down the stage line and defeating the cavalry at every turn. The Indians knew that the telegraph carried bad news for them and they methodically burned down poles and chopped up wire using what ever fuel was handy, willow twigs in this case.”
