Notes:
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 219
This painting, by Winter, an English artist, distinguished for his studies of Indian life, represents a spot sacred to Kentuckians. Here fell Jo. Daviess and many other eminent citizens of Kentucky in a hard-fought battle between Hen. Harrison and the Prophet, the brother of Tecumseh. The result of this battle, which continued through the whole of the night of the 5th of November, 1811, was most influential in the early settlement of the Northwest. It added much to the subsequent renown of Gen. Harrison, and led to his election to the presidency. The scene represented is notable for its great natural beauty, aside from its historic associations. [P. 18.]
