Overview
"HUNDREDS OF INDIANS OUT FRONT, SHUT THE BIG GATE TO THE FORT" One of the most terrifying and tragic events in Texas History was the Comanche and Kiowa Indian attack and massacre at Fort Parker in 1836.Nine year old Cynthia Ann Parker and her five year old brother John, were captured by the Comanche Indians. Five inhabitants of the fort were killed, scalped, and mutilated. A total of five people were captured and others were chased into the woods. This book, Comanche Dawn, is a history of life and events through the years following the attack and massacre. Cynthia Ann Parker was adopted by the Comanche tribe and later married Chief Peta Nocona. They had three children. The oldest son, Quanah, became one of the greatest Comanche chiefs. The book tells of Indian raids on the Texas settlements, the battles between the Comanche and the U.S. Cavalry, and a complete history of the Comanche Indians known as Lords of the Southern Plains. Let's saddle the horses and take a ride back in time to the Texas Frontier, 1836.
