Professor Roessler's Escort

On May 29, 1870 a scout or military escort, some ten or twenty strong, Professor Roessler, who was exploring the mineral resources of Archer, Wichita and other counties, was ambushed and attacked on the headwaters of Holiday Creek, a tributary of the Big Wichita by some forty or more Indians believed by the officers of the escort to have come from the Oklahoma reservation. They were well clothed in Indian style and were armed almost with firearms; no arrows were used in the attack.
