Horses at a walk, the cavalry j descended a slope into the camp i with infantry behind. A number j of the huts housing the veterans were seen to burst into flames. I Soldiers said the veterans fired them. The veterans placed the blame on the military. A group of men gathered at the center of the camp. Atwell shouted: "Give way, boys, give way.
