Comanches and Allies Battle Osages, 1824

In 1824 the Comanches, Arapahos and other tribes gathered a force of some 2000 warriors for a foray against the Osage. An advance party of about fifty Comanches was ambushed by the Osage. When the main body arrived they found the Osage heavily fortified along the opposite bank of the Arkansas River supported by fourteen white men. After losing two men the Comanches abandoned the fight and returned home.
