    "Did Quanah Parker Lie?"
    (Texas Tech University Libraries, 2017-06-20) Carlson, Paul H.
    Some scholars have accused Quanah Parker, Comanche "chief" in 1909-10, of not being forthcoming and truthful in several speeches he made - but most notably at the 1909 and 1910 Texas State Fairs - in order to protect his family's name. The statements relate to the 1860 capture of Cynthia Ann Parker from Comanches, with whom she had lived for nearly 25 years, by Federal troops. The statements also concern his father's death or non-death at the fight/massacre during the capture and Quanah's presence or non-presence there. Presented by Paul H. Carlson, Ph.D., Historian of Texas, The American West and Native Americans and Professor Emeritus at Texas Tech University.
