Edgar Rice Burroughs

As a relief from boredom at Fort Grant, Edgar Rice Burroughs returned to his hobby of sketching and water coloring and his notebooks are full of realistic images of soldiers, Apaches, horses and physical surroundings -- done with great skill and often a display of his sense of humour.

Below are some of the sketches ERB made during his service with the 7th U.S. Cavalry at Fort Grant, Arizona Territory.



Frederic Remington
Frederic Sackrider Remington (October 4, 1861 December 26, 1909) was an American painter, illustrator, sculptor, and writer who specialized in depictions of the Old American West, specifically concentrating on the last quarter of the 19th century American West and images of cowboys, American Indians, and the U.S. Cavalry.

The illustrations on this page were inspired by the time he spent with the US Cavalry at Fort Grant.
