Illegals Infest Mojave Homelands

   One of the first intrusions into Mojave territory was the Beale Expedition and the Mojaves were friendly to them because they didn't stay. But when a large wagon train showed up soon after and dallied along the river, the Mojaves attacked, then went face to face with a rag tag supply train led by Samuel Bishop, who was riding a white camel:

Samuel and 23 of his "beardless boys" rode straight into the Mojave lines (an estimated 1,800 warriors) on the last camel charge:
