Encampment on the Leona, Texas, 90 miles west of San Antonio, May 13, 1849. Sketch by Capt. Seth Eastman, courtesy Marion Koogler McNay Art Museum. Capt. Eastman was an artist who, during his travels with the army, provided us with some of the earliest images of frontier Texas. This scene is at or near the site of Ft. Inge, construction of which began shortly after this sketch was made.
