Battle Of Wild Cat Creek

What Wikipedia has to say about the Battle of Wild Cat Creek.

A recent newspaper account:

"The Indians ran into a ravine. The Americans followed, unaware that it was a trap. Over a hundred Indians opened fire on the militia. The militia spurred their horses to retreat, thus the nick-name of Spur’s Defeat. Eighteen men were lost within 2 minutes."
