1st Osage Battalion

In September, 1861, Colonel John Mathews, Augustus Captain and a number of Osage Indians burned Osage Mills and Mission; then raided and sacked the town of Humboldt, Kansas.
The various Osage Indian chiefs and leaders did sign a Treaty on 2 October 1861 with Albert Pike, Commissioner of the Confederate States, to support the southern cause. The Osage tribes indicated  they would provide at least 500 warriors to serve in the Confederate States Army. The 1st Osage Battalion, C.S.A., was organized with three companies in early 1862. It was sometimes known as  Osage Broke Arm's Cavalry Battalion. This military unit did provide some 200 men to serve in the Confederate States Army. It was assigned  first to General Ben McCulloch, then later to  Brigadier General Douglas H. Cooper in his Cooper's Indian Cavalry Division in 1863-64. The 1st Osage Battalion served under Brigadier General Stand Watie in his First Indian Cavalry Brigade. Surrendered by Brigadier General Stand Watie  near Doaksville, Indian Territory, on 23 June 1865.
