On Aug. 29, 1863, Indian raiders (probably Comanches) coming north from Mason County, with stolen horses, were caught a mile east of Buffalo Gap by Lt. T.C. Wright and eleven State troopers.
?????The outnumbered soldiers were forced to attack up a steep hill and the Indians, determined to keep the herd, fought stubbornly.
?????Wright and his men - two with severe arrow wounds - finally gave up the unequal fight and the Indians escaped with the horses. A lone rider was sent under cover of night to Camp Colorado (45 mi. se) to bring an ambulance for the wounded.
