"The Errand of Corporal Ross"

While on Campaign in the Guadalupe Mountains, Corporal John Ross of I Troop, 9th Calvary, was tasked to take a back trail and bring up the supply wagons that had lagged behind. Enroute to picking up the wagons, CPL Ross was set upon by three Mescalero Apaches who lay in wait. CPL Ross dropped his reins, grabbed his rifle, and spurred his horse on. He dispensed with his attackers and then continued on his errand bringing the wagons forward.
