Personal Experiences in and around Fort Phil Kearney1 My first enlistment in the United States army was in the Forty-ninth Illinois Infantry, January 1, 1862, for the War of the Rebellion. However, as this story deals with my Indian experiences on the plains, I will pass over my first enlistment.

A daughter was born to us here at Fort Sedgwick. She was a great favorite with Captain Fetterman, who wanted us to name her "Sedgwick," after FortSedgwick. After a rest of about four weeks we both went to Fort Laramie in an army ambulance,...
