There was a great rush to make the first ascent of America's highest peak. After several previous attempts, this describes the actual first ascent of Mount McKinley. Hudson Stuck, Harry Karstens, R. G. Tatum, Walter Harper, Johnny, and Esaias departed from Nenana on March 17, 1913. They reached the summit of McKinley on June 7, 1913. Walter Harper, a native Alaskan, reached the summit first.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hudson Stuck

Hudson Stuck (November 11, 1865 October 10, 1920) with Harry P. Karstens co-led the first expedition to successfully climb the South Peak of Mount McKinley. Stuck, an Episcopal Archdeacon, was born in London. He died of pneumonia in Fort Yukon, Alaska

The First Ascent of McKinley

'They carried a long log to the summit, so it could be seen at a distance.  A 
tent-pole was used for a moment as a flagstaff while Tatum hoisted a little United States flag he had patiently and skillfully constructed in our camps below, out of two silk handkerchiefs and the cover of a sewing-bag. 

The long pole was put to its permanent use. It had already been carved with a suitable inscription, and now a transverse piece, already prepared and fitted, was lashed securely to it and it was planted on one of the little snow turrets of the summit - the sign of our redemption, high above North America.' (from Ascent of Denali, page 105)
