The September 2, 1861 Gallinas Massacre
A week or two after the Battle of the Florida Mountains, the supposed Confederates stationed at Fort Stanton, supposedly became weary of the possible approach of Union soldiers to their vicinity. The commander of the fort, Lieutenant John Pulliam, ordered four Confederate soldiers to the Gallinas Mountains of New Mexico to, as already mentioned, keep a watch for possible Union soldiers. They were ordered by Lieutenant Pulliam not to camp near a spring in those mountains. They did not follow their commanders instructions and paid for it. After entering the Gallinas Mountains they made camp for the night. The four Confederate soldiers were discovered by a force of 30 Anishinabe soldiers the next morning, who commenced to use their bows and arrows to attack the four Confederate soldiers, after they awoke that morning. Three were killed, while the last managed to safely make it back to Fort Stanton.
