EXPLORING THE HISTORY OF IOWA By JOHN ELY BRIGGS UNIT NO 1 HOW IOWA WAS DISCOVERED 4 To Learn About Stephen W Kearnys Explorations Before railroads and high ways were built the rivers were the best routes for travel It was natural therefore that the earliest explorers should learn first about the Iowa coun try bordering the Mississippi and Missouri rivers But the broad prairies of the interior which could not be reached by boat remained to be discovered by troops of mounted soldiers marching across country be tween military posts Probably no man saw and described more of Iowa land before it was settled than Ste phen W Kearny On three long expeditions in 1820 182426 and 1835 he carefully observed the surface of the country the kinds of plant and animal life and the different tribes of In dians Nothing escaped his watchful eyes Attached to the first expedition without mili tary duties he had a good op portunity to notice the country It was on July 2 1820 that 21 soldiers with an Indian guide and his squaw and papoose set out from Council Bluff Ne braska to discover a direct route between that post and Camp Coldwater at the mouth of the Minnesota River Having crossed the Missouri the party marched up the valley of the Boyer River then crossed the divide to the headwaters of the Soldier river where many elk were seen and thence to the Little Sioux Game was plentiful all the way Wolves foxes and other furbearing animals were ob served A few miles southwest of where the town of Peterson is now located Captain Kearny shot a large buffalo That eve ning the whole company feast ed on bison steak which Kearny liked better than our common beef Three days later they saw a herd of about 5000 buffaloes which they did not molest Kearny i was Amazed at the extent of open prairie with scarcely a trace of timber One day they traveled 59 miles without finding any wood The soil was generally good but water was scarce which con vinced the Captain that north west Iowa would never support more than a thinly scattered population Somewhere in the neighbor hood of the present site of Em metsburg the expedition cross ed the west fork of the Des EXPEDITION QE or EXPEDITION Or IBIS

sev eral Indian villages in Iowa Dubuques lead mines and the ruins of old Fort Madison at tracted Kearnys attention In the course of about six weeks he traveled over 400 miles across the prairies of north western Iowa and along the en tire length of the eastern boundary Four years later he voyaged up the Missouri with General Atkinsons expedition and returned by the same route in 1826 thus exploring most of the western border Fifteen years after his march from Council Bluff to Camp Coldwater Kearny led three companies of dragoons mount ed soldiers on an 1100 mile ex ploration of the interior of Iowa On June 7 they started up the Des Moines River val ley By the time they reached the locality of Oskaloosa the prairie was red with ripe straw berries Turkeys grouse ducks and prairie chickens were plentiful and the streams were full of pickerel trout and cat fish Near the headwaters of the Skunk River they killed a few buffaloes After a month of hard rid ing Kearnys troopers reached the Mississippi near Lake Pe pin There they rested for two weeks held a council with some Sioux Indians and started homeward across what is now southern Minnesota At the Blue Earth River they turned south and followed the course of the Des Moines back to their post They arrived on August 19 all well and in good spirits ACTIVITY HINTS v 1 Trace the r o u t e s of Kearnys marches On a modern

roller gates stretched out across the broad Mississippi like a long train of oil cars has conquered the most dangerous stretch of river for navi gation Largest of its type in the world the structure is designed to bury under a sufficient depth of water a 15 mile stretch of tortuoua rapids above Davenport which government engineers who planned the nine foot channel from St Paul to St Louis termed the most difficult reach for navigation on the upper Mis sissippi river In the accepted sense the roller design isnt a dam at all Its a series of huge hollow steel drums which can be raised or lowered at will and which are filled with water when lowered Include Three Dnms Paradoxically the dam includes three dams because emergency har riers can be slipped In on both the upstream and downstream sidea of each roller to drydock it for repairs without impairing service Although 27 dams and locks arc included in the complete channel program 23 of to be constructed the one here was re garded as the most difficult hurdle because of the rapids Three of the 11 gates still to be swung into place before the job is complete but the dam was put into use this month during an unusually low water stage with the aid of a coffer dam at the Illinois slcle of the river Adjacent locks at the Illinois end nnd a two mile sea wall on the Iowa side were com pleted several months ago Joins With Locks

Each pier house also contains an electrical conduit leading to its roller to provide heat and prevent freezing of water at the dam throughout the winter Parallel to the dam is a steel bridge structure with tracks for moving an electric crane from one gates to th eother Should one of the rollers be damaged the crane will be used to lower a rectangular wooden slab into grooves provided for that purpose In the piers on the upstream side On the downstream side a similar bulwark system is provided so that a rollfir can be drydocked for repairs if stuck on the river bottom Bettendorf Estate
