defeat Comanches in Blanco Canyon, and a million buffalo hides came
east to Ft. Griffin in ox wagons, along its dusty route.
This Mackenzie Trail has been forgotten by history, although it
was more important than many of the trails that are marked. Its path
from Ft. Griffin, Shackelford County, west across Haskell, along the
Jones County line, across middle south Stonewall County, North-
west across Kent and Dickens via Soldier's Mound, north of Present
Spur, thence to the battle in Blanco Canyon, in which Mackenzie
ordered some 3,ooo Indian horses shot, leaving the Indians to walk
back to Indian Territory.
The Mackenzie Trail Memorial Association hopes to erect a
series of markers along this historical trail-the first in South
Haskell at the meeting of highways 277 and 380o. The Association
is soliciting contributions in any amount desired by the contrib-
utor. Contributors of $1oo or more will have their names en-
graved in the stone base of the monument. This is a purely volun-
tary effort and no pressure solicitations will be made. Contributors
may write to the above address.
