Rare mention of Kit Carson...

Item # 689679

September 04, 1863

NEW-YORK TRIBUNE, Sept. 4, 1863

* Kit Carson fights the Navajo Indians

Page 5 has a brief but notable report headed: "Victory of Kit Carson Over the Indians" about the defeat of a group of: " ...Navajoe Indians beyond fort Canby..." by part of the 1st New-Mexican Regiment led by Kit Carson.
Quite rare to see a report mentioning this famous Old West scout and  explorer, especially from the Civil War period.
The front page has much reporting on the Civil War including: "Expedition to Retake the Captured Gunboats" "Reports From Lee's Army" "His Army in Good Fighting Condition" "Dismissals From the Army" and more.
Eight pages, very nice condition.
