Working today on a new True West Moment:
The Battle of The Bulls
In November of 1846, the so-called Mormon Battalion encountered wild cattle along the banks of the San Pedro River at a place called "The Narrows." Aroused by the invaders, several bulls charged the column, tipping over wagons and killing two mules and injuring two soldiers. Stunned by the aggressive nature of the beasts, the soldiers loaded their rifles and charged the chargers, killing between 10 and 15 of the wild cattle. The soldiers sarcastically named the encounter the "Battle of the Bulls."
