Tate, Indians of Texas 3104: “This excellent work remains the best treatment of Mackenzie’s crucial role in military campaigns against Comanches, Kiowas, and Mexican Kickapoos from 1871 through the Red River War.” Mackenzie served at Forts McKavett, Concho, Richardson, and Clark in the 1870s, participated in the removal of Indians from Texas, and fought at Palo Duro Canyon. “In 1873 Mackenzie was assigned to Fort Clark to put an end to the plunder of Texas livestock by Indian raiders from Mexico. On May 18, in an extralegal raid, he burned a Kickapoo village near Remolino, Coahuila...and returned with forty captives. That and effective border patrols stopped the raiding” (Handbook of Texas Online: Ranald Slidell Mackenzie). ($150-300)
