Preparing To Meet The Enemy by Robert Griffing

 
     
 

Preparing To Meet The Enemy by Robert Griffing

 
     
 

The Lenni Lenape, which means "common people" were uprooted from their homelands in Eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey during the first half of the 18th century, tentatively establishing their villages along the river bottoms in Western Pennsylvania and Eastern Ohio with permission from the Iroquois confederation who controlled this territory. By 1755 the Lenapes would become an independent nation and call themselves Delawares.

Robert Griffing takes us to a typical Delaware encampment on the frontier. You see Delaware warriors painted in such a manner as to strike fear into the hearts of their enemies. As they make last minute adjustments on their weapons, the women serve a hearty feast of woodland stew. Also being prepared is a kind of meal made from ground Indian corn called Tassmanáne that could be loaded into a pouch and carried on the trail for later use.

Ready To Move was issued as an accompanying print to Preparing To Meet The Enemy. They may be purchased individually, or as a set.
