The Great Comanche Raid of 1840

The Great Comanche Raid of 1840

For most of Texas' early history, the Comanche people were the most powerful Indian tribe in the state and the Southern Plains, and the great fear of Texan settlers was that they would join together and strike deep into the heart of the state. In 1840, conflict with the Republic of Texas would see the Comanche and their allies do just that, as they launched the largest raid against European settlement in US history, a raid all the way from the Panhandle to the Gulf. Today on Come and Take It, we discuss The Great Raid of 1840 and the history of the Comanche in Texas.
