In 1869 Powell a Civil War hero
who lost his arm at the battle of Shiloh set off into the unknown.  He would be the first white man to run the
Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. 
It must have been a fearsome prospect. 
Back in 1869 the river ran wild and free, unfettered by damns that
drained its ferocious power.  The rapids
deep below the canyon walls would have roared, the sound carrying back to the
expedition as a challenge.  Powell’s goal
was to explore the Canyon and map this last uncharted bit of the west.  It is an amazing journey.
