John Wesley Powell Explores the Grand Canyon

John Wesley Powell, a one-armed Civil War veteran, led two geographic explorations down the Colorado River and through the Grand Canyon.  On May 24, 1869, 10 men in four boats embarked on a journey that covered almost 1,000 miles through uncharted canyons.  Three months later only 6 of the company emerged from the depths of the Grand Canyon.  In 1871-72, Powell led a second expedition through the Grand Canyon.  This expedition was much more successful – producing the first accurate maps of the area, and over 100 photographs.
