Thought to be the only complete and accurate account ever written on the Owyhee War, this important source document details the incredible events of the conflict: "On one level there was a heavy timber used as a support for the roof of the drift. It was probably fifteen inches in diameter and stood upright in the center of the drift. It was filled with bullets and had been so frequently struck and pierced that at one place about two or three feet from the floor It was cut nearly in two. It was said that this one piece of timber had been struck by two thousand bullets."
