Mulberry Creek

Back to Comancheria Forts

29 January 1869; Ford Kansas: In January a band of raiders, thought to be Pawnees from their reservation in Nebraska, ran off with horses from frontier settlements in central Kansas. Capt. Edward Byrne, with 25 troopers from Company C, 10th Cavalry, rode out of Fort Dodge in pursuit. He caught the thieves on Mulberry Creek and recovered the horses.

Two troopers were wounded in the pursuit; seven Pawnees were killed and one was wounded.
