Baird; Seventh cavalry battalion, Lieut.-Col. G. N. Folk, and Lieutenant-Colonel Walker's cavalry battalion. In September the Sixty-ninth regiment (Thomas' legion) was ordered to Powell's valley. This regiment was raised in the mountains of North Carolina and had in it two companies of Cherokee Indians. On this march, one of these Indian companies became engaged in a sharp little battle with the Federals, and Lieutenant Astoo-gah-sto-ga, who is described by Major Stringfield of that regiment as a splendid specimen of Indian manhood, led a charge and was killed. The Indians, says Major Stringfield, were furious at his death, and before they could be restrained, scalped several of the Federal wounded and dead, for which ample apology was made at the time.
