Between the years of 1875 and 1878 a large number of Kiowa, Arapaho, Caddo, Cheyenne, and Comanche warriors were imprisoned in Fort Marion in Florida for their participation in the Red River Wars. These prisoners were given materials: pencil, ink, and watercolors on old ledger and account books then encouraged to draw by their military captors. Twenty-six of these prisoners, mostly Cheyenne and Kiowa produced hundreds of drawings and a number of books depicting the life as warriors before capture. This style of drawings has come to be referred to as Ledger Drawings
