Just be- fore entering the Black Hills, the group camped in South Dakota near the Junction of Wyoming, South Dakota and Montana. By July 18, the expedition had reached the Belle Fourche River and remained in camp for two days, during whlch time it rained continually. Some members of the expedition feared that the rain would make it impossible to cross the Belle Fourche the next day, so the wagons were moved across the rlver that nighL It was while camping on Hay Creek near Aladdin on July 20 that members of the expedition began to feel the attraction of the Black Hills and many wrote in their Journals about the scenic beauty that sur- rounded them. Captain William Ludlow, who accompanied the expedition as Chief Engineer, re- marked in his Journal that the change from the plains to the north, where R had been very hot and drywas wonderful. He noted that prickly pear cactus seemed to be abundant during their march down and that finding water difficult. The expedition never actually penetrated the Bear Lodge Moun- tains but remained on the out- skirts of them and made note of the red sandstone cliffs and can- yons. On July 21, the party soon discovered thatdrinking too much of the water would cause dysen- tery. In faet a private named John Cunningham succumbed to this condition and died. He was buried on July 22 near Inyan Kara Mountain with another pri- vate, George Turner, who was shot during an argument with another soldier. On July 23, Custer and several of his aides climbed Inyan Kara Mountain, but was disappointed to find the view from the summit obscured by smoke. The Sioux had set fire to the prairie to the south and west of Inyan Kara Mountain. On July 24, the expedition reached what was for many, the highlight of the Journey. Custer and several others wrote in their Journals about how impressed they were with the place called Floral Valley where they camped on Cold Creek. It was noted that the men could pick flowers of every description without dis- from their horses. Of the more than 2,000 different flowering plant to be found in Wyoming. most of them can be found in or near Floral Valley. After Floral Valley, the expedition crossed into the South Dakota side of the Black Hills and ended the Wyoming portion of the expe- dition. A diorama consisting of three parts retraces the Custer Expedi" tion and is on permanent display at the Crook County Museum and Art Gallery.
