This biography from the Archives of AskART:
In 1864, Major George O'Brien did a sketch of Fort Cottonwood, later named Fort McPherson, near the future North Platte, Nebraska and also provided historical memoranda of military events in that region.

He was a member of the Seventh Iowa Cavalry, organized by the War Department to defend white frontier settlers against hostile Indian tribes, and became commander of Fort Cottonwood in 1864.  His troops were involved in warfare with Sioux, Cheyenne and Arapaho Indians, who had sacked Julesburg, Colorado in retaliation against Caucasian soldiers, who, under Colonel Covington, had slaughtered many Indians, mostly women, children and elderly men.
