    Battle of Punished Woman Fork, aka: Battle of Squaw’s Den Cave (1878)

    The last Indian battle in Kansas occurred after Chief Dull Knife and Little Wolf of the Northern Cheyenne decided to lead their people from their reservation near Fort El Reno, Oklahoma back to their former home in the north. The Cheyenne included 92 warriors, 120 women and 141 children attempting to make their way back home. As they came through Kansas crossing the Arkansas River at the Cimarron Crossing, Lieutenant-Colonel William H. Lewis, commander at Fort Dodge, was dispatched to capture and return them.
