Return of the Great Hunters: Part 6 Battle of Adobe Walls

On June 5, 1874, Hanrahan and a party of hunters departed Dodge City for Adobe Walls. The Indians on the Texas plains did not like the occupation of the hunters in the area, especially when they began killing off their buffalo for the sale of hides. The Battle of Adobe Walls fought on June 27, 1874, between Comanche force of 700 and a group of 28 bison hunters defending the settlement. Comanche Chief Quanah Parker, son of a captured white woman, Cynthia Ann Parker, led the Indian contingent. Some of the hunters, who were present at Adobe Walls, included James Hanrahan, 20-year-old Bat Masterson, William "Billy" Dixon who on the third day of the battle made a famous long-distance rifle shot effectively ending the siege.
