About The Conservative (Nebraska City, Neb.) 1898-1902 | View Entire Issue (Aug. 24, 1899)
TTbe Conservative * is
proparationa for Braddock's invasion
as to have drawn Indian allies from bo-
yoiul tlio Mississippi , and perhaps as
much at finding that they had suffi
cient influence to enable them to do so.
Of the fact , however , there appears to
be no question. Warriors from the
Otoe , Osage and Kansas nations made
the journey , being engaged by one
M'Cartie , in command at Fort Ohartres ;
which was in Illinois , not very far be
low St. Louis. The Kansas did not
reach the place in time for the battle ,
but the Otoes and Osages were present
and took part. Captain Pike , in 1806 ,
saw and talked with warriors who had
been of the party. One Wet Stone
gave him his recollections of the affair ,
which were naturally somewhat scanty ,
as half a century had already inter
vened. Wet Stone told him how all the
warriors who could be spared from the
villages went forth ; they were supplied
witli powder and ball at Fort Ohartres ,
and the place of assembly was near a
lake and a great waterfall , in which
Captain Pike thought he identified Ni
agara. They were absent on the expe
dition seven mouths , and so little pros
perity accrued from it to them that
when they reached their homes again
they were obliged to eat their horses.
