Mackenzie on the Texas frontier. It was mainly through the efforts of Mackenzie and his 4th Cavalry Regiment that the region's hostile Indians were subdued. The correspondence of this period (from June, 1873 to October 1879) gives insight into many dramatic events associated with Rio Grande border problems and the Red River War. Of special interest are the heretofore unpublished journals and reports relating to the climactic battle of Palo Duro Canyon and the subsequent slaughter of 1,048 horses captured from the Indians. Official reports of commanders of other military units involved in the Red River War are included to enable the reader to better understand Mackenzie's military operations. The correspondence also contains information relating to the harsh vicissitudes of weather, the scarcity of water, and the tribulations and fatique suffered by the troops as they battled a desperate people fighting for their old way of life." -- the publishers.
