This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Charles Moore drew some of the earliest images of features in what would become Yellowstone National Park. Intrigued by the stories about Yellowstone, Henry D. 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.

Although no official artists were included in the party, Charles Moore was one of two members of the expedition who made rough pencil sketches. Moore, who was born in Canada in 1846, served as a private in Company F, Second Cavalry of the United States Army. Langford referred to him in journals as "our artist."

Yellowstone sketches by Moore and Walter Trumbull were sent to Richard Watson Gilder, editor of Scribner's Monthly, to illustrate Langford's account of the expedition. The sketches by Moore and Trumbull needed to be redrawn for publication, and Gilder turned to Thomas Moran for that task. That sparked Moran's interest in Yellowstone and would lead him to join Ferdinand Hayden's expedition into Yellowstone in 1871.

Charles Moore, who also served in the Battalion of Engineers, died February 17, 1921. His work can be found in the Yellowstone National Park Library.
