Dragoons in Apache Country
24" x 36" oil on linen
Signed lower right

In the Spring of 1854, Lt. John Davidson led sixty Dragoons of the U.S. Army into Jicarilla Apache territory. He recklessly ordered an assault on a village and the Jicarilla responded fiercely. Eventually, the Dragoons were pinned down, taking a heavy barrage of arrows, and were in danger of running out of ammunition.
In order to save his command, Davidson ordered his men to mount and a hasty retreat ensued. Twenty-two troopers were killed. Nearly every surviving soldier was wounded.
