The August 1861 Battle of the Florida Mountains
After the Americans were defeated at the Battle of Cook's Canyon, the force of Confederate militiamen was assembled. The leader of the supposed Confederates was one Captain Thomas J. Mastin. Mastin got wise and thought that the livestock the Apache had stolen would slow down their march to the north of Mexico. He was right. He thought the Apache would make their pass through the Florida Mountains and set up an ambush. It didn't take very long to prove Mastin's predictions were correct. Soon after they seen the Apache approaching close to them through the Florida Mountains, the Confederates commenced their assault. They recovered nearly all the stolen livestock and killed 8 Indians and wounded several others in the battle. Mastin knew the Anishinabe soldiers were concentrated in the north of Mexico.
