Corporal (irocn oi liliatetl Troop I
Jrfcaier oi Second Alamo Account.
F?ieid Headquarters, June l!4 (by
"Wireless to Columbus, X. M.).?TrapJ'ped
and fighting against heavy odas,
the troops of the Tenth cavalry, en-,
s/ gaged at Carrizal 011 Wednesday,'
charged twice directly into tile jaws
of the ambush which the Mexicans'
had laid for them. With bullets in 1
his arm and shoulder, Capt. Charles
T. Boyd, the commander, remained in '
I the saddle, leading his negro troop- !
ers until they had capturea uie concealed
Mexican gun trench, when he!
y fell mortally wounded.
This was the gist of the first de-;
tailed account of the engagement
lrom American sources which was1
was brought to Gen. Pershing today
* hy Corporal Green of C troop, who !
was at Capt. Boyd's side when he
The Americans were HanKed on
both sides by the Carranzistas, who |
had partly surrounded the little com- j
mand during a conference between
* Gen. Felix Gomez, 4ae Mexican leader,
and Capt. Boyd. In front was a
i concealed gun trench from which a

poured into the American ranks.
Corporal Green said that Capt. 1
Boyd although wounded by the first
fire immediately gave the order to
charge, and the detachment rode at
top speed in a hail of bullets directly
at the trench, capturing it just as
the American leader fell. The Mexicans
retreated to cover in a nearbv
, Lieut. Henry Adair assumed comi
mand and ordered a second charge,
k which drove through the shack, scat
Itering tne LvieAicau wmmauu.
Green said he did not see Lieut.
Adair after this charge and believed
that he lost his life in it.
Meanwhile Capt. Lewis Morey, commanding
K troop, which was also
v partly surrounded during the parley,
^ occupied another adobe house with
his men from which he engaged a
second detachment of the Mexicans.
While it is assumed here that Capt.
iV'orey was wounded in the fight, neith
er Corporal Green nor an> ui
other survivors reaching here knew
anything of the outcome of that part
of the fight.
It is believed, however, that he may
i have collected the shattered remnants
of the American command and i
is bringing them slowly, and through j
obstacles, to Gen. Pershing's lines.
The survivors arriving here said that
the Carranzistas circled far around
Carrizal after they engaged, and
oVertook and captured a number of j
soldiers who had been holding horses j
tack beyond sight of the point where j
the fight began.
Piecing together the fragmentary!
reports which have reached field j
teadquarters, all except 21 of the 84
men engaged in the fight have -been j
accounted for. These reports indi- j
cate that 13 were killed and 17 taken
prisoner. Thirty-three have come
into camp here in the last two days, J
most of them coming afoot over a
desert, suffering the greatest hardships
from lack of water.
'News dispatches from Chihuahua
City yesterday indicated that with the
capture of five additional prisoners
the captives in the hands of the Carranzistas
now number 22, leaving 16
of the men engaged at Carrizal un- j
accounted for. j
