(Battleground 1 mi. NE of marker)One night in 1866, five men from Richland Springs (about 25 mi. ne) recovered stolen horses from Indians camped near here. A metal arrow hit a Mr. Lafferty, slid halfway around his skull, was cut out with a pocket knife, and Lafferty survived. The grave of an Indian casualty is about 300 yards north.
