On October 13, 1864, west of present Newcastle, Texas, Kiowa and Comanche Indians raided the Elm Creek Valley northwest of Fort Belknap. Dr. Thomas Wilson, Thomas Hamby and his son Thorton K. Hamby, a Confederate soldier, rode to warn others in the area and then defended several families who had taken refuge in George Bragg's cabin. After charging the cabin several times, killing Wilson and wounding Bragg and Thomas Hamby, the Indians hear shots from a company of Confederate colonel James G. Bourland's Border Regiment and rode north with a herd of stolen cattle and horses. The company under the command of a Second Lieutenant Carson, pursued the Indians but rode into an ambush, in which five soldiers were killed and several were wounded. The soldiers were killed south of Elm Creek and their bodies were removed to Fort Murrah for burial.
