      Lieutenant Hallowell hauled with all his might on the rein; Captain Booth climbed forward to the step opposite the Indian and kicked the nearest mule. Troops were coming? They dared not shoot; they dared not wait—could not stand having him crawl under them or over them, and perhaps strike; they dared not let him rattle. The captain sprawled for the rear once more, and tried to load. Keep together and keep low," Sergeant Woodall ordered.

      They were placed in two lines facing inward, and connected by a stout picket fence or palisade. What with his pain and his hunger he was desperate. Trouble now thickened in the north, especially in the Department of Dakota and in Wyoming of the Department of the Platte. He had cleared the decks of one enemy. A peace would be bad for the Indians. The Indians well knew how the white men were crowding in upon them, from Virginia--were stealing Kentucky and threatening the Ohio country.

      Evidently an enormous quantity of buffalo were still being wasted. It was two miles across, and they hitched along, on their knees and on hands and knees, every foot of the way, while the rocks and cactus tortured them. Rescue was due! The captain had to pause and pull it out.

The "Fight of the Privates," or "Twenty-five to One," as it is known in army annals, had gloriously ended. On their rapid ponies the Indians flashed past between the saloon and Rath's, darted here and there around the corners, flung to earth and ran to pry at windows and doors.

The first had been built in by William Bent and his partners of Bent's Fort, as another trading-post, to deal with the Red River Comanches. So-called sportsmen bombarded right and left, and kept tally to see who should kill the most.

They would have had no water, except for the rain. Their striped faces grinned gleefully as their quirts rose and fell and their heels hammered their ponies' sides. He never did recover, and the next spring he died; he had given his life to save the lives of others.

The Indian began to notch an arrow upon the bow-string; he was going to shoot. Nothing captures the thrill of entering that world, being strangers in it, better than this. Their route was cut by a wide, open valley covered only with stones and cactus.

In five days he had eaten only a handful of raspberries and two raw crawfish; in five nights he had not slept a wink; in four days and nights he had traveled across country, by horse and foot, naked except for the piece of blanketing, for a distance of about two hundred miles.

The Cheyennes, their allies from the Sioux and the Arapahos, made no such promise regarding the Kansas Pacific. Evidently they knew nothing of the cavalry camp. He threw his revolver. An Indian scampered from the Shadley brothers' wagon, his arms full of plunder; but a bullet from the saloon dropped him like a stone.

He made a raft of logs tied together with vines and strips of bark, and paddled over. For more information about the German court case, and the reason for blocking all of Germany rather than single items, visit PGLAF's information page about the German lawsuit.

The six shot briskly and carefully, to clear the way. He beleaguered new Fort Phil Kearney in northern Wyoming, wiped out one detachment of eighty-one men, attacked other detachments, cut off the supplies from all the forts, stood firmly in the path; and in the United States Government agreed to withdraw all soldiers and leave the country to the Sioux.

They all knew me [he had been on their reservation], and yelled, 'Amos!
