Battle of Black Kettle Island
In November 1869, Army troops from three separate forts were dispatched to attack hostile Indian camps in the Oklahoma Panhandle. The most devastating attack was made by the troops of the 7th cavalry led by Lt. Colonel Custer. The cavalry inflicted severe damaged on the Southern Cheyenne before withdrawing. The US army lost 21 soldiers killed.
