The Brenda Photo Challenge- Memories
A housing for ammunition sits in the middle of a huge fort, a reminder of the civil order we pressed upon newly populated areas along the Missouri River. A council was called here and marked by a feathers and peace pipe in a monument commemorating a meeting by Lewis and Clark with three of the large tribes in the area, telling them of an upcoming deluge of settlers coming to the area to farm and start new towns. "Your lands will become ours," had to be a bit startling to the Native Americans, but obviously they felt not a major problem in their existence. Nobody really owned these lands, they only used them. Little did they realize what would happen to them with a mass immigration of new people.
