Ledger Art
During the end of the great Indian wars many warriors were imprisoned at Fort Marion, Florida. With no written language a warrior used pictographs to show his exploits in war. Soldiers gave the Native Americans ledger books, colored pencils, crayons, and ink, and with these materials they created a Picture history of there lives.

All  ledger art hand-drawn by artist Michael Schwab, recreated on original 1880's ledger paper, colored pencils, crayons, and ink are used to recreate these works.
