(Correspondence of the Kan Francisco
One of the queerest bills ever in
troduced into Congress originated
with Senator Plumb of Kansas, for
whom that Stale is yet in mourning,
and aptly illustrates the philanthro
pic nature of the work which crowd
ed him out of life twenty years bo
fore his time.
The incidents leading up to the in
troduction of this bill weie of the
startlltigly atrocious nature Hint is
not often encountered outside the
covers of the dime novel
Early in the Fiftieth Congress Mr.
Plumb introduced in the Senate a
bill askiug Congress to appropriate
from the Indian funds the sum of
$5000 for Robert McGee of Kansas,
who lost his scalp at the hands of the
Brule Sioux In 18C4 while acting as
teamster on a wagon train loaded
with government flour in transit over
the plains from Fort Leavenworth,
Kansas, to Fort Union, New Mexico
The story of Mr. McGee's life is
intensely interesting and pathetic in
In 18G4 a slender stripling of 14
years came tramping into Leaven
north seeking employment, a by no
means uncommon occurrence. His
parents had died en route to the
plains of Kansas and at Westpoit
1 tiding the wagon train that had
given him shelter that far broke up,
and he was thrown on his own resources.
The times were troublous ones
Bushwhackers and border rutllans
made life a burden to all who came
in their path, irrespective of political
faith, and the Indians were scourg
ing the interior.
Companies were being mustered
for frontier service against the In
dians and Robert McGee volunteered
and went with the others to Fort
Leavenworth to be mustered in. The
Government 'needed men just then,
and needed them bad, but Robert's
youth and diminutive size weie
against him. He was rejected by the
The basis of supplies for the fron
tier post was then at Leavenworth,
and the government was at that time
loading a wagon train with flour for
Fort Union, N. M. This wagon train
was owned by a contractor named II.
C. Barrett, but he would not take
the chances of the long and perilous
Irip of over 1100 miles across the Indian-infested
plains of Kansas and
through the mountains ravaged by
robbers and outlaws unless the gov
ernment leased the train outright or
gave him an indemnifying bond and
insurance against loss. The govern
ment gave the bond and Barrett pro
ceeded to employ teamsters. Among
others Robert McGee, who had been
refused the right th bear arms in de
fense of the government, was en
gaged, as he supposed, as teamster
on u government train. As the se
quel shows, it would have been a
head of hair to him had he been
among the troops.
This wagon train, fully equipped,
left Fort Leaveiiworth on July 1,
1804, with an escort of government
troops. They proceeded over the old
Santa Fe trail, striking the Arkansas
river where the town of Great Bend
is now located, at the confluence of
Walnut creek and the Arkansas. This
region is quite rough and was then
known as the Walnut hills. It might
well be called "dark and bloody
ground," for some of the most hor
rible massacres in the history of
western Indian warfare were perpe
The wagon train was just eighteen
days out on its trip and had traversed
only a little . more than 300 of the
1100 miles. There had been insigni
ficant skirmishes with roving bands
of Indians, but nothing to eaute
alarm, and the vicinity of Fort Lar
ned was deemed sulllcient protection
from serious danger.
The day had been torrid and the
inules and men were tired, $nd so
about 3 o'clock on the afternoon of
the 18th a halt was called and the
train went into camp. The escorting
troops stacked arms about u mile dis
tant from the wagon train and in full
view of it.
The teamsters should have been on
the lookout for surprises and proba
bly were, but secure in the thought
that n regular attack is never made
at that hour of the day in Indian war
fare, the ill-fated men prepared to
take their ease.
It was four o'clock on the afternoon
of the I8th when 150 Brule Sioux,
under Little Turtle, with wild war
whoops swooped down from the Wal
nut hills upon the wagon train, and
of all the small army of men in its
employ but one, Robert McGee,
came out alive to tell the story.
They were all shot dead as they
sat about the mess and were given
no time to defend themselves. The
mules went to swell the herd of the
yelling demons, the wagon covers
were torn to shreds, the flour was
emptied from the sacks upon the
open plain and the wagons were de
stroyed. Robert McGee was attacked by
Little Turtle himself and knocked to
the ground by a blow from the
chief's tomahawk, As he lay there
nartially stunned Little Turtlo fired
two poisoned arrows through his
body, pinning him to the ground.
Then, in a transport of fiendishness,
ho took Robert's own pistol and shot
him, the bullet lodging ueur the
backbone. Not quite satisfied that
he had done a good job, ho Btooped,
and, running his knife around Rob
ert's skull, lifted his entire scalp,
tearing it off just back of the ears.
Thinking him dead by that time,
Little Turtlo abandoned his victim,
but others of the baud in passing
paid him their respects by cutting
him with their kijivos and 'punching
holes In him with their lances. The
others in the train wero killed out
right and horribly mutilated.
After the Indians had dono all the
deviltry thoy could they rode whoop
ing away, and the troops, who, from
their snfe vantage ground, had wit
nessed the whole affair, came up to
investigate and ascertain whether,
according to the government policy
at that time, the Sioux had been
treated with proper respect. The
ollioer in command never gave any
satisfactory reason for his strange
conduct at the time in failing to
come to the rescue of the train, and
was court-martialed and dismissed
from the service. The only part the
troops look in the engagement was to
bury the dead.
When they undertook to put Mc
Gee undergiound, however, they
found a lively corpse, despite the
fact that lie was scalped and had
fourteen wounds, any of which
would have terminated the life of the
average man, besides four minor in
juries. After burying the teamsters 'ho
soldiers haUened to Fort Lamed,
thirty miles distant, where young
McGee was put under the care of the
army surgeon. It was iliree months
before he was able to be moved. He
had during thai time i'.iir command
of his mental faculties and was able
to tell all the incidenU of the at
tack. Barrett, who had remained in
Leavenworth, immediately on learn
ing of the disaster that had befallen
his train put in a claim for damages
against the government and was
awarded a big sum, but utterly re
fused to do anything for the boy who
was the sole suivivor of the mas
sacre. McGee's case :i laid before the
President and in October, 18U4, Mr.
Lincoln sent him a letter and pass by
special messenger telling him to
come to Washington as soon as lie
was able to travel and he would see
that his wrongs wero righted. Gen
eral Curtis saw McGee'soon after he
was scalped and gave him a standing
order on the government for clothes
and nations, and Dr. Clark, the sur
geon at the fort, recommended in his
ollicial report that the Brule Sioux
be assessed S5000 for the benefit of
the boy so horridly maltreated at
their hands. This report was sup
pressed by the "peace policy Qua
kers" ring then in power in the
When McGee got able to be about
his mind, which up to that time had
been remarkably clear, began to
cloud, and he became possessed with
an insane desire to hunt Sioux to the
death. In one of his frenzied spells
the pass and letter ot President Lin
coln and tho order given by Geueral
Curtis were stolen from his pockets
aud neither the President nor the
army ever took notice of his condi
For a dozen years after receiving
his injuries McGee was a wanderer.
He sought the companionship of
various Indian tribes, learning many
languages and dialects, friendly to
and favored by all except the Brule
Sioux, of whom his tormentor, Little
Turtle, was chief. These Brules he
hunted mercilessly, and when one
clay it was found that Little Turtle
had been mysteriously "wiped out"
it was said that the biggest notch on
McGee's gun barrel commemorated
the full measure of his revenge a
long, deep mark for the chief and
nine shorter ones for tho nine tinder
chiefs who had "bit the dust" at the
command of the trusty rifle that
never failed of Are when pointed at
a Brule breast
After Little Turtlo, had gone to the
happy hunting grounds McGee's
mind began to regain its equilibrium
until at last he was perfectly sane
and has been for a decade. He has
no education, such as comes of books
or schools, but is intelligent and
No hair lias ever been induced to
grow upon his scalp, though he has
been the subject of many novel ex
periments to that end by eminent
surgeons l it both the new and the old
world, and the medical colleges of
the country are perfectly familiar
The 85000 asked of Congress was
appropriated from tlie Sioux fund
held by the government tor that
tribe, and is one of the few like
claims ever presented and recovered,
