Lieutenant Knox's Fight in the Sabinal Canyon

Captain Warfield was placed in command of a company of rangers stationed near D'Hanis, in 1845, to protect the German Settlements in that vicinity. A part of his command under the leadership of Lieutenant Knox, went on a scouting expedition in the Sabinal Canyon. Somewhere in the vicinity of the present town of Utopia, a large number of Indians were encountered and in the fight that followed, eight of their number were killed. Lieutenant Knox lost one man.
