Between 1846 and 1866 there were some fifteen or twenty Indian wars or affairs, in which it is estimated that 1,500 whites and 7,000 Indians were killed. In the actions between regular troops and Indians, from 1866 to 1891, the number of whites killed was 1,452; wou1866 to 1891, the number of whites killed was 1,452; wounded, 1,101.

Another pitched battle was fought near the same place the next year. The Indians were again victorious, and the American loss was more than half the army— 631 killed and 263 wounded. On Aug. 20, 1794, General Wayne, with 900 United States soldiers, routed the Indians in a battle near
