The Mountain Men

The Mountain Men

A brigade of trappers traverses “Jackson’s Hole” named after Davey Jackson who wintered in the valley in 1829.  For efficiency and protection, a brigade usually consisted of 40 to 60 men. Only when working the streams in search of beaver would they break into teams of 2 or 3 men.

Horses were a valuable trade item and the mountain men were constantly on guard to protect their property from the Indians.  Hopefully this brigade will fare well against the ever present dangers.
