NATIVE AMERICAN HISTORY IN FORT WORTH
Fort Worth is rich in Western history and colorful heritage. Perhaps, the story of Cynthia Ann and Quanah Parker is one of the best known frontier tales in American history. The Comanches, known as the "Lords of the Plains", were regarded as perhaps the most dangerous Indians Tribes in the frontier era. The U.S. Army established Fort Worth because of the settler concerns about the threat posed by the many Indians tribes in Texas. The Comanches were the most feared of these Indians.Take a look below at the many Native American and Comanche related sites of interest available in Fort Worth.
COMANCHE AND NATIVE AMERICAN SITES
Quanah Parker, a frequent visitor to Fort Worth, known as the last great Comanche Chief was a prolific and fierce warrior. He led his people into battle persevered but ultimately surrendered to life on a reservation.
The Comanches, known as the "Lords of the Plains", were regarded as perhaps the most dangerous Indians Tribes in the frontier era.
One of the most compelling stories of the Wild West is the abduction of Cynthia Ann Parker, Quanah's mother, who was kidnapped at age 9 by Comanches and assimilated into the tribe. At age 34, Cynthia Ann was stolen from the Comanches by Texas Rangers and returned unwillingly, to her former life.
