Lt. Henry H. Stevens, 5th California Infantry, and 54 men of Company I were on a march from Fort Cummings to Fort Bowie. As they passed through Doubtful Canyon near Stein's Peak, about 100 Apaches attacked them. The fight lasted for nearly two hours and resulted in 10 Apaches dead and about 20 wounded, and 1 soldier missing, presumed killed, and 6 wounded, 1 mortally.
