The April 7, 1864 Battle of Mount Gray
Once again we have to deal with possible white corrupted historical records. According to white historians, after the so called California Column had driven the Confederates out of Arizona, they commenced to building forts in Arizona. Camp or Fort Mimbres, was eventually built by the whites and then garrisoned with a number of American soldiers. In mid March of 1864, a force of Anishinabe soldiers launched a raid at Cow Springs which resulted in a large number of cattle being stolen by the Anishinabe soldiers. In response to the Anishinabe raid, the Americans raised a force of 46 soldiers under the command of Captain James H. Whitlock. They were ordered to find the stolen cattle and return them. Just another lie of course.They were really ordered to find Indians and kill them with their superior weapons. Early (4 a.m) on the morning of April 7, 1864, the small force of American soldiers discovered a camp of Indians who historians claim were the Anishinabe soldiers who stole the cattle the previous month. After discovering the camp, the American soldiers commenced to launch a direct assault on the camp which had probably more women and children than soldiers. Historians claim the camp had 250 soldiers but we know better.
It had been more than 3 weeks since the Anishinabe soldiers had stolen the cattle. It was just another American assault on an innocent group of Anishinabe people who did not have anything to do with the stolen cattle. Anishinabe casualties were 21 killed (most were women and children) and many more wounded. A force of brave Anishinabe soldiers bravely fought the white soldiers who had superior weapons, towards the end of the battle, to assure that the remaining women and children escaped from the American soldiers who would have killed all their women and children if they had the opportunity. American casualties were none which indicates that in fact the camp was occupied by mainly women and children. This massacre occurred where present day Hidalgo County, New Mexico is.
