The May 5, 1862 Battle of Dragoon Springs
This battle was fought on May 5, 1862 near present day Benson, Arizona. What Anishinabe military ogimak wanted from this battle which was more a minor skirmish than a battle, was the stray cattle the supposed Confederate soldiers were rounding up. A force of 100 Anishinabe soldiers attacked the force of Confederate soldiers tending to the cattle problem. They killed four of the supposed Confederate soldiers in the skirmish. They then stole the cattle and horses, they had been tending to. A few days later, on May 9, 1862, the supposed Confederates found the location where the Anishinabe soldiers had taken their cattle and horses. They attacked them and stole back the cattle and horses. Around 5 Anishinabe soldiers were killed during the second Battle of Dragoon Springs.
