Ep. 105 The Indian Trial Part 2: The Raid

General Sherman toured northern Texas to see just how bad the Indian raiding was. He had his doubts. What he didn’t know was just how close he came to a first-hand encounter! The party crossing the Salt Creek Prairie right after Sherman wouldn’t be so lucky. As the Kiowa swept down toward Henry Warren’s wagon train, the teamsters tried to circle the wagons. They didn’t make it. The Indians were proud of their accomplishment but they would soon regret it. The American legal system kicked into gear at the behest of Indian Agent Lawrie Tatum. Soon the Indians would, for the first time, face a trial. Learn the details in part 2 of the Indian trial: The raid.
