ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the last fight of legendary Indian fighter Colonel Kit Carson at the ruins of an old trading post called Adobe Walls on November 26, 1864. Colonel Carson took the First Cavalry from New Mexico to raid the winter home of the Plains Indians somewhere south of the Canadian River. Carson had about four hundred men. On the night of November 25, scouts rode into camp to tell Carson the Indians, Comanches and Kiowas, were camped near Adobe Walls. The next morning Carson attacked a Kiowa village and destroyed it. But some Indians escaped and spread the alarm.
