This is a quote from a book called "Requiem for a People" by Stephen Dow Beckham.
" On October 17 the Rogues besieged a cabin and temporary breastwork of earth and flour sacks at a miner's camp near Skull Bar at the mouth of Galice Creek.The bands under 'George' and 'Limpy', people who usually lived near the mouth of the Applegate, fought desperately for over eight hours with more than forty miners and packers.The Indians, attempting to dislodge these men who held a key position on the river trail, continued the unsuccessful struggle until sundown, when they retreated, dreagging their dead and wounded with them.The miners suffered fifteen casualties, four of whom later died."
A footnote reads; "Those killed were J.W. Pickett, Samuel Sanders, Israel Adams, and Bejamin Tufts, Oregon Statesman, Nov. 3, 1855. U.S. Congress, Senate, Senate Misc. Doc No. 59, 36 Cong., 1 sess., 31-33
