Battle of Palo Duro Canyon

Kaylin Cao 6th period

Fighting in the Battle

The canyon was a favortie campground to the Plains groups. There was a dangerous descent there, and Colonel Ranald S. Mackenzie set on fire to the Comanche, Kiowa, and Cheyenne villages. In the conflict, few lives were lost, but the troops captured good supplies and 1,424 horses and mules. By November, almost all of the Native Americans bands were leaving and going to the reservations.
