MY ARMY LIFE SERGEANT GIBSONs ADDRESS. I came out with the regiment from Fort Kearney, Nebraska, in May, 1866 , the youngest boy in the company, ardent to follow the destinies of the company at whatever cost. I accompanied General Carrington in the rescue of Fettermans heroes from the field of battle, little dreaming in the anguish of that fateful hour, that it would be my fate, while guarding a similar wood- train some months later, to aid in avenging that massacre, by retribution so signal, just and complete. General Carrington himself, my dear old commander, sufficiently detailed that cam- paign in his address this morning, as we gathered about the monument itself.

His fingers had been cut off to get a couple of rings from them, and he was subjected to other nameless indignities. One of the Indians killed in the ravine was found to have Daniels shirt on, as well as a large portion of his bleeding scalp. The body of Sergeant Terrel was buried on the knoll where we fought, and the body of Lieutenant Daniels was taken to Fort Reno, where it was buried with suitable military honors. 11 The wounded were carefully looked after, and on our road back to Fort Reno we met a detachment of the Second United States Cavalry, under Lieutenant H.
