Graphite on paper
Gift of the Pearl Brewing Company
Framing the view with expressive live oaks, Eastman captures the hills looking south from Sabinas Creek, a tributary of the Guadalupe River, toward San Antonio. Seven miles northwest of what would become Boerne (plotted in 1852), the soldiers of Company D march with rifles slung over their shoulders left of center in the drawing. Clumps of trees in the middle right outline the creek's curved meander.
