Washburn, Surveyor General of Montana Territory, organized an expedition to the Yellowstone wilderness in the summer of 1870, with a military escort led by Lieutenant Gustavus C. Doane. Nathaniel P. Langford, who would later become the first superintendent of Yellowstone National Park, also played a major role in the expedition.
