The pic below is about the oldest i have seen of Beechers it shows what the river would have looked like at the time hardly any trees, no cover just rifle pits dug behind dead mules and horses on a small sandbar in the Arikaree river.

The little sandbar in this pic is pretty much where it went down.


Now that Sodbuster's a Washingtonian, can it be all that long before we see detailed historical accounts of those prairies east of the Cascades, Battle at Steptoe Butte, the hunt for Harry Tracy, history of the Omak Stampede, etc??
