"This is a detail of a painting commissioned by the Los Angeles Museum of Natural History, and for a limited edition print of a subject rarely, if ever, depicted by the chroniclers of the west.

The Marines like to think that our principle enemies were "lancers" in the grand tradition of Napoleonic and European armies. These lancers, however, often composed of entire families, were hide hunters who followed the wild cattle herds. Lances were much cheaper than powder and ball, and equally efficient; and the used them with much skill. The hides were then collected and transported on two wooden-wheeled carts back to San Diego or Pueblo de Los Angeles, for shipment to markets overseas.

To give them a background, the rocky hill in the rear is another view of Mule Hill."

- Excerpt from Marines and Others: The Paintings of Colonel Charles Waterhouse USMCR (Ret)
