Texas was poor 00:19:16 - 2238anyway and so the-the call went out for some help, you know, some army troops. And the governor didn't have anybody to send except some Texas rangers to lead a volunteer cavalry and he-he put a commander in charge, Sul Ross. One of the cavalry-or the-the Ranger scouts was Charlie Goodnight, which is my interest in this story. Well, they came-the Rangers came upon the Comanche settlement or the camp at Mule Creek where it strikes the Pease River, early of a morning in December of 1860, just a few days before Christmas Eve, rode into the camp and the warriors, as was their tactic, rode off like they were retreating because they didn't want to have the fight there in their-their00:20:06 - 2238camp. And this allowed the-the women and children to pack up the teepee's and-and leave. So they-the battle essentially moved a mile away from the-the camp with the rangers and the-and the warriors fighting in this pitched battle. Well, the-the cavalry rides up about this time, but these-now they're volunteers. First of all, they've never really been in a serious Indian fight and secondly, they are the husbands, and the fathers and the brothers and the sons and the neighbors and the cousins of the victims of that fall. 00:20:38 - 2238And so what they did was, instead of going out to the battle, they rode back and forth through the camp killing the women, the children, the old people, the dogs, the horses until they came to Cynthia Ann and they could see that she was once White. So they-they had to run her down, captured her, drug her back against her will.
