    Seeking disposition of Comanche and Kiowa horses seized

    Ruth Baxter Newbie

      Are the letter books of Fort Sill circa 1870s digitized and available?  I am looking specifically for records pertaining to the disposition of horses seized from Comanches and Kiowas when they came in to the agency in 1875.

As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from the various NARA units.
