The November 26, 1864 First Battle of Adobe Walls
It will be the work of future historians to learn the exact truth behind this battle known as the First Battle of Adobe Walls. You'll soon learn why. This battle was fought on November 25, 1864 near the Canadian River in Hutchinson County, Texas. Not too far from the January 1865 Battle of Dove Creek. Most likely the United States was attempting to halt a massive Anishinabe exodus from the Kansas-Oklahoma-Texas region, to the north of Mexico. General James H. Carleton, of the supposed Union Army (he was responsible for capturing Tucson from the supposed Confederates and defeating the Anishinabe Army at the Battle of Apache Pass in 1862), who now was in charge of the Union Army in New Mexico, was obviously ordered to halt the Anishinabe people who were fleeing to the north of Mexico, by way of Texas. He ordered Colonel Christopher Carson (better known as Kit Carson), to lead a force of supposed Union soldiers numbering 335, and 75 of their Indian allies, to the southern portion of the Texas panhandle, to attempt to halt the massive Anishinabe exodus to the north of Mexico. Of course, the whites had the superior weapons which included the howitzers, machine guns, revolvers and so on.
On the early morning hours of the 26th of November, 1864, Colonel Carson's small army discovered a camp of some 150 lodges (about 1,000 to 1,500 Indians) but they were seen by alert Indians, which led to the Anishinabe people in the temporary camp, just being attacked by the whites, packing their belongings and leaving to nearby Anishinabe camps to request for their military support. Colonel Carson soon learned the exact size of the number of fleeing Anishinabek. He estimated they had near 5,000 soldiers in that small region of Texas. That indicates that up to 50,000 Anishinabe people were fleeing to the north of Mexico then. In the battle that followed, only the superior weapons of the whites prevented the Anishinabe soldiers from annihilating them. Anishinabe soldiers endurred between 50 and 60 killed, and near 100 wounded. The whites endurred 6 killed and 25 wounded. Colonel Carson claimed the battle was a Union victory. However, he had no choice but to get as far away from the enraged Anishinabe soldiers who were leading their women and children to the north of Mexico. Anishinabe soldiers had prevented the whites from accomplishing their goal. It was an Anishinabe victory, as was the January 1865 Battle of Dove Creek. This would not be the last battle in that region of Texas, to stop the Anishinabe people from fleeing to the north of Mexico.
