1892 - Quanah Parker and his wife Tonasa. He was Comanche/Scots-Irish from the Comanche band Noconis, Comanche chief, leader in the Native American Church, and the last leader of the powerful Quahadi band before they surrendered their battle of the Great Plains and went to a reservation in Indian Territory. He was the son of Comanche chief Peta Nocona and Cynthia Ann Parker, a European American, who had been kidnapped at the age of nine and assimilated into the tribe.
Inspired by S. C. Gwynne's wonderful book "Empire of the Summer Moon", this map, "The Comanches And War On The Texas Frontier 1836-1875" shows all the major battle sites, text describing the battles, forts, trails and the extent of Comanche controlled area, "Comancheria", during the period. #comanches #texas #map
