Battle of Fort Wayne

Can't find a map, but it is worth noting that today marks the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Fort Wayne, fought in northeastern Oklahoma Territory on October 22, 1862. Maj. General James Blunt led a surprise attack on a Confederate camp that drove the Rebels to the Arkansas River and resulted in the capture of the baggage train and fifty prisoners.
