NEW YORK TRIBUNE, December 27, 1866 

* Fetterman Massacre
* Fort Philip Kearney

The bottom of the front page under: "Massacre At Fort Laramie" "Three Officers And Ninety Soldiers Surrounded And Butchered" is a rather brief & inconspicuous report on the Fetterman Fight, reading in full: "A terrible massacre occurred on the 22d, near Fort Phil. Kearny. Brevet Col. Fetterman, Capt. Brown, and Lieut. Gammond, of the Eighteenth Infantry, with 90 enlisted men of the Second Cavalry and Eighteenth Infantry, were surrounded by Indians, and every officer and man killed."
This was one of the more deadly massacres of American soldiers during the Indian wars of the Old West.
Eight pages, good condition.
