This item, a English language copy of a story published in German in the Kansas Free Press of Leavenworth, Kansas, was completed shortly after the May 29, 1869, Indian attack on Fossil Creek Station in Kansas. The story states that four men were wounded and two men were killed when they "fell out of the wagon, and afterwards scalped and horribly butchered by the savage Indians." The item also indicates that the attacking party had damaged the railroad track, delaying rail travel and "ditching" trains that failed to spot the damaged section of track. Fossil Creek Station was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2014.
