Kit Carson defeats the Navajo Indians...

Item # 681405

September 04, 1863

SPRINGFIELD DAILY REPUBLICAN, Massachusetts, Sept. 4, 1863 

* Kit Carson fights the Navajo Indians

The bkpg. has a rather small report headed: "Defeat of Indians by Kit Carson" with the report from Albuquerque, New Mexico, giving the details of a victorious battle over the Navape [sic Navajo] Indians. See photo for details.
Rarely is the famed explorer & scout Kit Carson ever mentioned in period newspapers. Page 2 has various reports on the Civil War. Four pages, very nice condition.
