Chief John Koss, of the Cherokee notion opposed dim, but at length yielded to tbu impor- tudities'ot the tribe,. and struck a -bargain •with tho Cdnfednrate agent Pike was tho regularly accredited commissioner of the : Confederate istotos of America to the Indians. 'He proiiiised to pay to tlio rod men tho annuities they had heretofore received from the United States. He also promised to take the southern part of the Indian territory under Contedentte protection. This included tho couiitry of tho Chootaws and Chickasaws, Pike's design wns to securo In time tho wholo Indiiin territory to the Confederacy. Tho Indiana raised a force of 3,000 men for tho war. Jeffei-son Davis had authorized Pike to enlist three regiments. The Indian agreement was ratified at a mass meeting at Tahlequah, .the Cherokee ' capital. It was signed by "John Ross, Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation." It was secretly against his will, however. .His wife, a young, well educated womtm, was so opposed to it that she . drove off the men who tried to raise a Confederate flag over her house, and they had to give up the attempt This was tb« last of August, 1861. John Ross was nearly Wh'ito, having! only one-eighth Indian blood. He wns a man fit for a great leader anywhere, Ho had cast his lot with his Indian brethren, although bis appearance gave no sign of the dusky blood in his veins. For more than . forty years he had acted as the : Moses. who -led ,his tribe from barbarism to civilization. Ho cscaiied north with his family in the summer of 1803. Ross!

February 11, Curtis began his march against Price, ;\s ho approached, Price retreated south, and finally, went over the border Into Arkansas, He camped at a place called Cross Hollows. Curtis' cavalry followed In close pursuit. Price retront«l hastily, leaving a number of sick and a considerable amount of commissary stores behind him.. Ho burned his barracks at Cross Hollows. ' Near this place occurred one of those outrages of the war which all must regret now. Some of Price's provisions wore loft at n hamlet called Mud Town. Some Confederate officers, before they abandoned these, scattered poison over them. Federal officers and; men, following on found the provisions, ate of them and sickened and died. Who pei^ petrated the act has never been exactly ascertained. But it ehows what warfare in Missouri and Arkansas meant in those days. Price continued -retreating till he came to Boston mountains.

Van 'Dorn'j force -was twice as large as his own, and included .Indians and border Toxons. Curtis' battle line extended east and west across Pea Ridge between three and four miles from Sugar creelc to Elkhorn tavern.

' Cross Timber Hollow was a deep and difficult ravind, covered with fallen trees, between the two armies. Through this hollow they had to rwieb each other. Col. Ostcrhuus, of Chicago, opened tho lisbt by an attack on Van Doru's. center at 10:30 in tho morning, March 7. Just ns lie commenced this movement word was hastily brought to Curtis that bis pickets had been driven in. . So tho battle was begun. Soon there was tremendous fighting. Tho woods swarmed •with Confederates, who .seamed tospting from the cround. Carr's division, on tho extreme right, had -boon heavily attacked, and Osterhaus was driven : hack. Curtis had ordered Gen. Davis to the relief of. Carr on tho right, but Ostorhaus' men came Dying hack upon tho center. Tho order to Davis was countermanded, and ho wns told to stay and help 0-stcrhaus. He quickly changed his lino of march under fire. X r ery shoi-tly Gen.

Tho Con federates broke and fled. Both Gens.- McCulloch and Mclntosb fell mortally wounded. Their forces tried to reform, but Sigol cnine up with two batteries of heavy artillery and it was all over, Then Sigel moved over to tho Federal right to help Carr. That day Carr hhd fought snven moi tal hours against Price. Van Dorn himself .was in command here most of the day, mid hero tho most terrific fighting of tbo battle took place. Early in tho day Col. Curr Imd sent to Cui'tls for ru '6 n force-; inents. Thoy could not bo spared. Ho fought on, and once more Kent for help, saying ho could hold out no longer. Again thero was no assistance. "Persevere," said tho commanding general. Ho did so, till a fourth nf • h!s men lay deud, dying and wounded upon thu lleld.
