Guadalupe Canyon

Back to Comancheria Forts

8 June 1885; Northeastern Sonora, Mexico: Capt. Henry Lawton and Capt. Charles A.P. Hatfield, who operated out of Fort Huachuca with elements of Companies C, D, and G of the 4th Cavalry, were patrolling south of the border near Guadalupe Canyon when Apaches attacked their camp. As the soldiers were having their noon meal, with only one sergeant and seven privates guarding the camp, about 50 warriors of Chihuahua's band swept in. The raiders killed three men, captured livestock, burned equipment, and carried off supplies.
