This black and white photograph captures a scene from B. Brown's camp at the mouth of Sand Creek. The campsite is surrounded by trees, shrubbery, sticks, and fallen limbs. In this photo, four barely visible individuals sit on wooden folding chairs in a semicircle. The first individual on the left is in dark shadow, making it difficult to distinguish their gender. The other three individuals are men. The two men in the middle of the semicircle are wearing circular-brimmed hats. The fourth person is a male wearing a vest and what might be a neckerchief or scarf around his neck. Behind the group are five tents built within a tree-covered area. Four are large tents, while a fifth tent off to the left of the photo is a much smaller teepee-style.
