Douglas Cooper's Indian command contained Chilly out of their country without their consent, he had no other alternative but to submit. On March 3d he overtook Stand Watie's regiment of Cherokees; next day, Colonel Drew's regiment of Cherokees, at Smith's mill; coming up with the rear of General McCulloch's division late in the afternoon of March 6th.
