Example text

Seeking to water the horses and men in Horseshoe Canyon in the Chiricahua Mts, Russell and Whitney were deceived by a false trail. The Apaches had also used the waterhole, but had then left clear tracks emerging from the canyon again. Convinced that it was safe, Russell proceeded to the waterhole – unaware that the Apaches had later turned away from their direction of march and up into the high ground, following the upper slopes and dropping off at intervals to lay an almost circular ambush above and around the waterhole.

One Navajo scout was killed and three cavalrymen were wounded. Some of the detachment themselves panicked, and fled all the way back to the other side of the Rio Grande. Rucker, with another officer and ten men, fought a rearguard action back down the canyon, with the Apaches harassing them from the high ground throughout their retreat to the river. The reporting of this skirmish in the monthly regimental return and the bi-monthly company muster roll is interesting. In the former it is acknowledged that Rucker lost five horses killed in this ambush.

The D KILLING AMBUSH: CANDELARIA MOUNTAINS, NOVEMBER 7 & 9, 1879 This reconstructs a successful double-stage ambush planned and sprung by Victorio. In the first phase, the Chiricahuas were lying in wait, on either side of a canyon, for a party of about 14 Mexican irregulars from the village of El Carrizal. Once the Mexicans (blue spots) had ridden into the canyon, warriors whom Victorio had posted each side of the entrance and exit of the killing-ground, and others along the slope to the Mexicans’ right (red spots), opened fire.
