In the history of the Indian wars in Texas, two remarkable battles were fought in the dusty Panhandle trading post of Adobe Walls. Last week we talked about the first battle, the last great moment of glory a legendary frontier figure. The second was the first battle in a war that finally saw the end of the Comanche presence in Texas.
Before we begin… In the interest of fairness, who is your favorite Houston Astro?
The Hutchinson County Museum in Borger has a very interesting exhibit on both battles of Adobe Walls, including a map to and of the archeological site.
