1859 – Sylvester Mowry buys the Weekly Arizonian and begins publishing from Tucson, after having failed in his attempt to kill the editor in a duel the previous month.
1873 – A band of more than 21 Indians, reputedly Apaches, had come down the South Llano River in Texas, raiding and stealing horses along Beaver Creek and Legion Valley. James R. Moss collected his two brothers (Stephen B. and W. B. Moss), as well as E. D. Harrington, Eli Lloyd, Arch Martin, Pink Ayres, and Robert Brown and followed the Indians for twenty-five miles. The group overtook them on top of the mountain, where they had 300 or 400 pounds of beef laid out on the rocks. The fight occurred on 5 August. In the fight three Indians were killed and four whites were wounded. After the Indians retreated, the whites rode to the John B. Duncan ranch, where Dr. C. C. Smith from Llano gave them medical attention. This was the last Indian fight in the county, which had been the scene of Indian raids for at least a decade. Two markers commemorate the fight: a granite plaque placed at the battle site on August 5, 1938, by descendants of the participants, and a roadside marker ten miles from Llano, placed by the Llano County Historical Committee during the Texas Centennial activities of 1936.
1882 – Established in 1859 to protect traders along the Santa Fe Trail, Fort Larned in Kansas is officially abandoned.
1886 – Despite a good income from gambling and living in a nice hotel in Denver, Colorado, Doc Holliday was arrested for vagrancy because he had no legal means of support. Others were arrested on similar charges in the city’s effort to clean itself up, at least for the newspapers.
