Incidents of the Dull Knife raid

Incidents of the Dull Knife raid
Creator: Street, William D., b. 1851
Date: 1900
This item, written by William D. Street of Oberlin, Kansas, details the events surrounding the Dull Knife raid. According to Street, events began in the summer of 1878 while he was working as a cowboy in parts of Kansas and Colorado. Street recalls that he was first aware that something was wrong upon hearing women and children crying, something that he states was unusual because women and children "seldom frequented the cow camps." Street then asked a man named Sim Holstine what had happened, and Sim told him that an Indian raid had just occurred and the locals were preparing to assist the U.S. Army apprehend the offenders. The remaining seven pages of this item details the events that occurred after the party of men left to find the Northern Cheyennes responsible for the raid.

Winchester center-fire carbine

Winchester center-fire carbine
Date: between 1868 and 1869
Winchester model 1866 center-fire repeating carbine. Serial number 79311, manufactured around 1868 to 1869. Belonged to George Allen, who established a homestead for his family in 1870 about three miles west of Tescott. He used the carbine in a skirmish between eight or nine settlers and a group of Indians at a creek located approximately half a mile east of Beverly. Allen had originally acquired the Winchester from an Indian, who traded it for Allen's muzzle-loading rifle because it was too difficult for him to acquire shells for the Winchester.
