Back to Comancheria Forts

17 April 1868; Tularosa, New Mexico: In the foothills of the Sacramento Mountains near Tularosa, New Mexico, a detachment of Company H, 3rd Cavalry, commanded by Sgt. E. Glass and aided by a party of armed citizens, fought with the Mescalero Apaches. One trooper and 5 civilians were wounded. The party reported killing 10 Indians and wounding 25, very likely an exaggerated count.
