“He was still winning,” Kellie Frost said one night in their home in Quanah, Texas.
The horse fell suddenly, pitching Quanah headlong to the ground his gun falling from his grasp and bounding away.
Then something happened that Quanah was never able to explain.
A number of different stories have been related about Quanah's mishaps in the fight.
The father of T'ebodal is famous for having had ten wives; Quanah, the present head chief of the Comanche, has six.
Quanah Parker was not present, as he was too young to be a participant in the capacity of chief.
The Adobe Walls, where Quanah led his celebrated fight, were not built until 1873 or 1874 and were some distance down the river.
