Artwork Description

General Crook was a man who was respected by soldier and Indian alike. When he was sent to the Southwest to defeat the Apache, he realized that the only way he could find the Apache was to use Apaches as scouts to find their own people. They became his biggest asset. They usually wore a peculiar blend of military and Apache clothing and equipment, which suggested the conflict they must have felt between the two cultures.
