In 1864 famed frontiersman Kit Carson took a force of several hundred soldiers into the heart of the Llano Estacada in an attempt to punish the Comanche for their recent raids.

What followed was a bloody fight now known as the first Battle of Adobe Walls, as Carson and his men kicked the hornet’s nest and quickly found themselves outnumbered 10 to 1.

This episodes got something for everyone! We’re gonna talk Kit Carson, we’re gonna talk army tactics, Billy the Kid, the Navajo, the Apache, and - of course - the Comanche.
