Quanah Parker leads a band of Comanche's in a raid on the U.S. Army Cavalry at
Blanco Canyon Texas in 1871. It was the first time he was reported seen by whites. He
was 23 years old. The raid was done in the middle of the night. All of the army's
horses and other live stock were turned loose and stampeded. The Comanche's took
as many horses as they could handle and scattered the others. It was a very
successful raid for the Comanche's. It could have been a disaster for the cavalry.

A slovenly Comanche. The Comanche's had a reputation for being slovenly and nasty -
even among the other Indians. They were short, thick set people. With that said - they
were the finest horsemen, of all the plains Indians.
