Battle of Mill Creek
« on: April 01, 2018, 04:09:03 PM »
 this Indian battle  takes place along the Wyoming and Colorado border

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Milk_Creek

It's a good short read

while I am at it, Most of us have heard of and read of the exploits of William Dixon
But how many remember or know of   Jim Baker

Both Wyoming and Colorado claim him as their own because he is thought to have been the first settler in Colorado Territory, and he built what is often called the first permanent cabin in Wyoming Territory. And, though he was a white man and despite many hostile encounters with American Indians, he befriended some of them and married Indian women, which led to his being called “the red-headed Shoshone.”

in these days of A.P.C.s, and tanks being airdropped a few miles from a hot zone, the very notion of reinforcements taking days to weeks to arrive is forgotten
