781. Fort Crawford was an outpost of the United States Army in Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin, during the 19th Century. The Second Fort Crawford Military Hospital was designated a U.S. National Historic Landmark in 1960. The army's occupation of Prairie du Chien actually spanned the lifetime of two fortifications, both of them named Fort Crawford. The first of these was occupied from 1816-1832, the second from 1832-1856. Both forts formed part of a string of fortifications along the upper Mississippi River. The imaged painting is owned by the Prairie du Chien Historical Society.

783. John Elwood Bundy (1853-1933) was part of the Richmond School of Indiana painters and Richmond's premier artist,. He was born in Guilford County, North Carolina and was raised on a farm in Morgan County, Indiana near Monrovia. He spent nearly a decade in New York City as a portraitist but decided to focus on landscape painting. He worked in both oil and watercolor, and much of his subject matter came from Wayne County, Indiana.

In 1888, he moved to Richmond and for eight years headed the Art Department at Earlham College where he taught drawing and painting. During that time, a book of his etchings, Fond Recollections, was published and reflected his love of the scenery around Earlham. He exhibited widely across the United States including the 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition, the Pennsylvania Academy in 1904, the National Academy of Design in 1911 and 1916, the Chicago Art Institute in 1903 and 1907-1914, the Hoosier Salon in 1925, and the 1902 Society of Western Artists. Bundy died in a sanatorium in Cincinnati on January 17, 1933. The below oils are from the fine collection at the Richmond Art Museum, Richmond, Indiana.
