Choctaws Attack Bogy at Mouth of Verdigris, 1807

On January 7, 1807, some Choctaws led by Chief Pushmataha happened upon a French trader named Joseph Bogy and his men unloading goods to trade with the Osage, bitter enemies of the Choctaw, near the mouth of the Verdigris River. Pushmataha and his band attacked the Frenchmen, drove them back and plundered the goods.
