Tww Comment

In early 1859, William F. Raynolds was charged with leading an expedition into the Yellowstone region of Montana and Wyoming to determine, as far as practicable, everything relating to the indiginous people of the country, its agricultural and mineralogical resources as well as the facilities or obstacles to the construction of rail or common roads . Anton Schönborn was the mapmaker on the expedition.
