He was a mountain man fur trapper , wilderness guide, Indian agent , and U. Carson became a frontier legend in his own lifetime via biographies and news articles.
Often exaggerated, versions of his exploits were the subject of dime novels. His understated nature belied confirmed reports of his fearlessness, combat skills, tenacity, and profound effect on the westward expansion of the United States. Carson left home in rural present-day Missouri at age 16 to become a mountain man and trapper in the West.
In the s, he accompanied Ewing Young on an expedition to Mexican California and joined fur-trapping expeditions into the Rocky Mountains. He lived among and married into the Arapaho and Cheyenne tribes. In the s, Carson was hired as a guide by John C.
Later in the war, Carson was a scout and courier, celebrated for his rescue mission after the Battle of San Pasqual and for his coast-to-coast journey from California to Washington, D. When the Confederate threat to New Mexico was eliminated, Carson led forces to suppress the Navajo , Mescalero Apache, and the Kiowa and Comanche peoples by destroying their food sources.
He was there only briefly: Carson was married three times and had ten children. The Carson home was in Taos, New Mexico. Carson died at Fort Lyon, Colorado , of an aortic aneurysm on May 23, Carson was born in Kentucky on Christmas Eve , Lindsay had had five children by his first wife Lucy Bradley, and ten more children by Rebecca. Kit was their sixth, making him the eleventh of Lindsay's offspring.
Lindsay Carson had a Scots-Irish Presbyterian background. The family settled on a tract of land owned by the sons of Daniel Boone , who had purchased the land from the Spanish.
The Boone and Carson families became good friends, working and socializing together, and intermarrying. Lindsay's oldest son William married Boone's grand-niece, Millie Boone, in Their daughter Adaline became Kit's favorite playmate.
Missouri was then the frontier of American expansionism west; cabins were "forted" with tall stockade fences to defend against Indian attacks. As men worked in the fields, sentries were posted with weapons, to protect the farmers. These men were ready to kill any Indian who attacked.
In Lindsay Carson died instantly when a tree limb fell on him while he was clearing a field. Kit was about 8 years old. Despite being penniless, his mother took care of her children alone for four years. She then married Joseph Martin, a widower with several children.
The decision was made to apprentice him to David Workman, a saddler in Franklin, Missouri. Kit wrote in his Memoirs that Workman was "a good man, and I often recall the kind treatment I received. Franklin was situated at the eastern end of the Santa Fe Trail , which had opened two years earlier.
Many of the customers at the saddle shop were trappers and traders, from whom Carson heard stirring tales of the West. Carson found work in the saddlery not to his taste: In August , against his mother's wishes, Kit ran away from his apprenticeship.
He went west with a caravan of fur trappers, tending their livestock. Kit settled in Taos. Carson lived with Mathew Kinkead , a trapper and explorer who had served with Carson's older brothers during the War of Eventually he became fluent in Spanish and several Indian languages. Workman put an advertisement in a local newspaper back in Missouri.
He wrote that he would give a one cent reward to anyone who brought the boy back to Franklin. No one claimed the reward. It was a bit of a joke, but Carson was free. Between and , Carson worked as cook, translator, and wagon driver in the southwest. He also worked at a copper mine near the Gila River in southwestern New Mexico. There are only three specific women mentioned in his writing: Ann White, a victim of Indian atrocities.
At the age of nineteen, Carson began his career as a mountain man. He spent the winter of — as a cook for Ewing Young in Taos. The leadership of Young and the experience of the venture are credited with shaping Carson's early life in the mountains. During August the party went into Apache country along the Gila River. The expedition was attacked, being Carson's first experience of combat.
Young's party continued on into Alta California trapping and trading in California from Sacramento in the north to Los Angeles in the south, returning to Taos, New Mexico in April after trapping along the Colorado River.
Carson joined a wagon train rescue party after entering Taos, and although the perpetrators had fled the scene of atrocities Young had the opportunity to witness Carson's horsemanship and courage.
Carson joined another expedition led by Thomas Fitzpatrick and William Levin in Fitzpatrick, Levin and his trappers went north to the central Rocky Mountains. Carson would hunt and trap in the West for about ten years.
He was known as a reliable man and a good fighter. Life for Carson as a mountain man was not easy. After collecting beavers from traps, he had to hold onto them for months at a time until the annual Rocky Mountain Rendezvous ,  held in remote areas of the West like the banks of the Green River in Wyoming. With the money received for the pelts, necessities of an independent life including fish hooks , flour and tobacco were procured.
As there was little to no medical access in the varied regions he worked in, Carson had to dress his wounds and nurse himself. This suit offered some protection against particular weapons employed by Indians. Grizzly bears were one of the mountain man's greatest enemies. Two bears crossed paths with him and quickly chased him up a tree.
One of the bears tried to make him fall by shaking the tree, but was not successful and eventually went away. Carson returned to his camp as fast as he could. He wrote in his Memoirs that: The last rendezvous was held in Fashionable men in London , Paris , and New York wanted silk hats instead of beaver hats. In addition, beaver populations across North America were declining rapidly from over-exploitation.
Carson knew it was time to find other work. He wrote in his Memoirs that "Beaver was getting scarce, it became necessary to try our hand at something else. Hundreds of people worked or lived there. Carson hunted buffalo, antelope, deer, and other animals to feed these people. He was paid one dollar a day. He returned to Bent's Fort several times during his life to again provide meat for the fort's residents. Carson was nineteen when he set off with Ewing Young's expedition to the Rocky Mountains in In addition to furs and the company of free-spirited, rugged mountain men, Carson sought action and adventure.
He found what he was looking for in killing and scalping Indians. Carson probably killed and took the scalp of his first Indian when he was nineteen years old, during Ewing Young's expedition. Carson's Memoirs are replete with stories about hostile Indian encounters with the memoirist. In January , for example, warriors of the Crow tribe stole nine horses from Carson's camp. Carson and two other men sprayed the Crow camp with gunfire, killing almost every Crow.
Carson wrote in his Memoirs: Carson viewed the Blackfoot nation as a hostile tribe, believing they posed the greatest threat to his livelihood, safety, and life. He hated the Blackfeet, and killed them at every opportunity.
Historian David Roberts has written: Carson had several encounters with the Blackfeet. His last battle with the Blackfeet took place in spring He was traveling with about one hundred mountain men led by Jim Bridger. In Montana territory, the group found a teepee with three Indian corpses inside. These three had died of smallpox. Bridger wanted to move on, but Carson and the other young men wanted to kill the Blackfeet.
They found the Blackfoot village and killed ten Blackfeet warriors. The Blackfeet found some safety in a pile of rocks but were driven away. It is not known how many Blackfeet died in this incident. Historian David Roberts writes: Carson's notions about Indians softened over the years.
In , two years after he lost his first wife, Carson married a seventeen year old Cheyenne Indian woman named Making-Our-Road. Carson had been contracted by the commander of the post to do some hunting for the troops. The extended time he spent away from his new bride working contributed to the demise of their union.
Less than a year after they were married, Making-Our-Road decided she no longer wanted to be tied to Carson. When he returned to the Cheyenne tribe camp to see his wife, he found his personal belongings outside her lodge. According to Cheyenne custom that was her way of telling him she wanted him to be gone. She later migrated out of the area with other members of her tribe.
Josefa spent much of her first year of marriage without her husband. Thirteen months passed from the time Carson left in late May shortly after they wed he joined Fremont as a guide and scout on another excursion and he returned. Josefa maintained the cabin Carson built for her on the Little Cimarron River, alone. He kept the company he was hired to work for safe from warring Native Americans and wild animals. When war broke out between the United States and Mexico, Carson joined in the fight and served daringly.
His actions on the field of battle earned him a personal appointment from President James K. Polk as Lieutenant of Rifles. Josefa was able to finally spend a great deal of time with her husband as he tried to adapt to the life of a gentleman rancher. Josefa recognized that Carson was not meant to lead a life working the land. She could see he was much more interested in protecting her, their family, friends, and his business associates from frequent raids by the Indians in the southern plains and the desert.
Carson and Josefa raised ten children together. Three were Indian orphans Carson took in during his tenure as an Indian agent. The pair also had six children of their own and they adopted a Navajo boy. He was made Lieutenant Colonel of the New Mexico volunteers and was required to meet in Albuquerque with the other soldiers from the territory in June Josefa and family went with him. On August 2, , Josefa gave birth to another boy. Carson was not shy about showing his love for his wife and children.
Officers in the New Mexico volunteers, such as Captain Rafael Chacon, wrote in his memoirs about the touching scene he witnessed between the mountain man and his brood. He was most kind to his wife, Dona Josefa Jarmillo. He moved his family to Boggsville, Colorado, in where he briefly took command of daily operation at Fort Garland in the southern portion of the territory.
Not long after they arrived at the post, Josefa gave birth to their third daughter. An accident he had suffered some months before taking the job as Superintendent of Indian Affairs for the Colorado Territory was causing him problems. During one of his many trips across the west a rattlesnake had spooked his horse. Carson was hurled over an embankment and injured his neck. At the age of fifty-seven, riding a horse was excruciatingly painful for him. He traveled primarily by army ambulance.
Carson used an army ambulance to transport himself and a delegation of Ute Chiefs to Washington, D. When it came time to return to Colorado in March , Carson was weak and exhausted. Josefa was expecting their seventh child, and he wanted nothing more than to be with her. I must get home…. The Carsons welcomed their seventh child into the world on April 13, Two weeks after their daughter was born, Josefa died of complications from that birth.
Carson was heartbroken over the loss of his wife and overwhelmed by the prospect of caring for his large family alone.
The financial burden worried him as well. The income earned as military man, superintendent, and former trapper was meager. Sherman, concerning the little wealth he had to pass on. He died of a ruptured abdominal aneurism on May 23, , at Fort Lyons, Colorado. Their bodies were later moved to a cemetery in Taos, New Mexico. Let the man you love feel free to travel, especially after you get married. Kit Carson was a busy explorer. After three months of marriage he joined an expedition across the unsettled frontier, leaving his new bride at home alone.
Be emotionally and spiritually grounded. Maria Josefa was devoted to the church and wanted the same in a husband. Kit appreciated that about Maria Josefa and her faithful example led to his conversion.
Be sure of yourself, and like an explorer of the Old West, be ready to tackle whatever obstacle lies ahead of you. White was a frail, delicate, and very beautiful woman, but having undergone such usage as she suffered nothing but a wreck remained; it was literally covered with blows and scratches. Her countenance even after death indicated a hopeless creature.
Over her corpse, we swore vengeance upon her persecutors. Carson discovered a book about himself in the Apache camp. This was the first time that he found himself in print. He was the hero of adventure stories. He was sorry for the rest of his life that Mrs. White had been killed.
He wrote in his Memoirs: I have often thought that Mrs. White read the same In , Carson told his life story to someone who wrote it down. This book is called Memoirs. The manuscript was lost when taken East to find a professional writer who would work it into a book. Washington Irving was asked, but declined. The lost manuscript was found in a trunk in Paris in It was later printed.
The first biography of Carson was written by DeWitt C. When the book was read to Carson he said, "Peters laid it on a leetle too thick. One of Carson's best known adventures took place during this war. Mexican soldiers attacked Kearny and his men near the village of San Pasqual, California.
He knew he could not win; he ordered his men to take cover on a small hill. Carson and the lieutenant removed their shoes because they made too much noise, and walked barefoot through the desert.
Had to travel over a country covered with prickly pear and rocks, barefoot. By December 10, Kearny believed reinforcements would not arrive. He planned to break through the Mexican lines the next morning, but mounted American soldiers arrived in San Pasqual late that night.
They swept the area, driving the Mexicans away. Kearny was in San Diego on December In April , the American Civil War broke out. Carson left his job as an Indian agent and joined the Union Army as a lieutenant. He led the 1st New Mexico Volunteer Infantry and trained the new men. In October , he was made a colonel. The Confederates won this battle but were later defeated in June and retreated to Texas. Author and historian Edwin Sabin writes that this officer had a "psychopathic hatred of the Apaches".
The Mescaleros were tired of fighting and put themselves under Carson's protection. Carleton put these Apaches on a remote and lonely reservation on the Pecos River. Carson disliked the Apaches as well. He wrote in a report that the Jicarilla Apaches "were truly the most degraded and troublesome Indians we have in our department He was tired and had suffered an injury two years before that gave him great trouble.
He resigned from the Army in February Carleton refused to accept the resignation because he wanted Carson to lead a campaign against the Navajo. He chose this site for the Apaches and Navajos because it was far from white settlements. He also wanted these Apaches and Navajo to act as a buffer for any aggressive acts committed upon the white settlements from Kiowas and Comanches to the east of Bosque Redondo. He thought as well that the remoteness and desolation of the reservation would discourage white settlement.
By March , four hundred Apaches had settled around nearby Fort Sumner. Others had fled west to join fugitive bands of Apaches. By middle summer, many of these people were planting crops and doing other farm work. On July 7, Carson, with little heart for the Navajo roundup, started the campaign against the tribe. His orders were almost the same as those for the Apache roundup: No peace treaties were to be made until all the Navajo were on the reservation.
Carson searched far and wide for the Navajo. He found their homes, fields, animals, and orchards, but the Navajo were experts at disappearing quickly and hiding in their vast lands.
The roundup proved frustrating for Carson. He was in his 50s, tired, and ill. By autumn , Carson started to burn the Navajo homes and fields and remove their animals from the area. The Navajo would starve if this destruction continued.
One hundred eighty-eight Navajo surrendered and were sent to Bosque Redondo. Life at the Bosque had turned grim; murders took place. The Apaches and Navajos fought. The water in the Pecos contained minerals that gave people cramps and stomach aches. Carson wanted to take a winter break from the campaign.
Major General Carleton refused, ordering him to invade the Canyon de Chelly , where many Navajos had taken refuge. Historian David Roberts writes, "Carson's sweep through the Canyon de Chelly in the winter of — would prove to be the decisive action in the Campaign. The Canyon de Chelly was a sacred place for the Navajo. They believed that it would now be their strongest sanctuary. Three hundred Navajo took refuge on the canyon rim at a place called Fortress Rock. They resisted Carson's invasion by building rope ladders and bridges, lowering water pots into a stream, and keeping quiet and out of sight.
These three hundred Navajo survived the invasion. The thousands of peach trees in the canyon were cut down. Few Navajo were killed or captured. Carson's invasion, however, proved to the Navajo that the United States could invade their country at any time.
Many Navajo surrendered at Fort Canby. By March , there were 3, refugees at Fort Canby. An additional 5, arrived in the camp. They were suffering from the intense cold and hunger. Carson asked for supplies to feed and clothe them. The thousands of Navajo were led to Bosque Redondo.
Many died along the way. Stragglers in the rear were shot and killed. In Navajo history, this horrific trek is known as Long Walk of the Navajo. By , reports indicated that Bosque Redondo was a complete failure, and Major General Carleton was fired.
In , a treaty was signed, and the Navajo were allowed to return to their homeland. Bosque Redondo was closed. Adobe Walls was an abandoned trading post blown up by its inhabitants to prevent a take-over by hostile Indians.
It was one of the largest engagements fought on the Great Plains. The battle was the result of General Carleton's belief that Indians were responsible for the continuing attacks on settlers along the Santa Fe Trail.
He wanted to punish them and brought in Carson to do the job. With most of the Army engaged elsewhere during the American Civil War, the protection the settlers sought was almost nonexistent. Carson led cavalry, 75 infantry, and 72 Ute and Jicarilla Apache Army scouts.
In addition, he had two mountain howitzer cannons. Kit Carson to artillery officer Lt. On the morning of November 25, Carson discovered and attacked a Kiowa village of lodges. After destroying this village, he moved forward to Adobe Walls. Carson found other Comanche villages in the area, and realized he would face a very large force of Native Americans.
A Captain Pettis estimated that 1, to 1, Comanche and Kiowa began to assemble. That number would swell, according to some accounts, to an implausible 3, When Carson ran low on ammunition and howitzer shells, he ordered his men to retreat to a nearby Kiowa village. There they burned the village and many fine buffalo robes. His Indian scouts killed and mutilated four elderly and weak Kiowas.
The retreat to New Mexico was then begun. There were few deaths among Carson's men. General Carleton wrote to Carson: I cannot express my surprise at beholding such a small, stoop-shouldered man, with reddish hair, freckled face, soft blue eyes, and nothing to indicate extraordinary courage or daring.
He spoke but little and answered questions in monosyllables. But, his head and face made up for all the imperfections of the rest of his person. His head was large and well-shaped with yellow straight hair, worn long, falling on his shoulders.
His face was fair and smooth as a woman's with high cheekbones, straight nose, a mouth with a firm, but somewhat sad expression, a keen, deep-set but beautiful, mild blue eye, which could become terrible under some circumstances, and like the warning of the rattlesnake, gave notice of attack.
Though quick-sighted, he was slow and soft of speech, and posed great natural modesty. The real Kit Carson I found to be a plain, simple In fact, the hero of a hundred desperate encounters, whose life had been mostly spent amid wilderness, where the white man is almost unknown, was one of Dame Nature's gentleman He was initiated an Entered Apprentice on April 22, , passed to the degree of Fellowcraft June 17, , and raised to the sublime degree of Master Mason December 26, ,  just two days after his forty-fifth birthday.
The Masonic fraternity continued to serve him and his family, well after his death. In , the Grand Lodge of New Mexico erected a wrought iron fence around his family burial plot. Carson was married three times. His first two wives were Native American.
His third wife was Mexican. Carson was the father of ten children. He never wrote about his first two marriages in his Memoirs. He may have thought he would be known as a "squaw man". Such men were not welcomed by polite society. Singing Grass was a lovely young woman, and many mountain men were in love with her.
Carson won, but he had a very narrow escape. The French trapper's bullet singed his hair. The duel was one of the best known stories about Carson in the 19th century. Carson married Singing Grass. She tended to his needs, and went with him on his trapping trips. They had a daughter named Adaline or Adeline. Singing Grass died after giving birth to Carson's second daughter, in about This second child did not live long: Carson's life as a mountain man was too hard for a little girl so he took Adaline to live with his sister Mary Ann Carson Rubey in St.
Adaline was taught in a school for girls called a seminary. Carson brought her West when she was a teenager. She married a George Stilts of St. In , she went to the California goldfields. Adaline died in  or after , probably in Mono County, California.
They were together only a short time. Making-Out-Road divorced him in the way of her people by putting Adaline and all of Carson's property outside their tent. Making-Out-Road left Carson to travel with her people through the west. About , Carson met Josefa Jaramillo. She was the daughter of a wealthy and prominent Mexican couple living in Taos. He married year-old Josefa on February 6, They had eight children. He was embarrassed by this, and tried to hide it. I jumped to my rifle and threw down my spelling book, and thar it lies.
Carson enjoyed having other people read to him, and preferred the poetry of George Gordon, Lord Byron. Carson", but it was very difficult for him. He made his mark on official papers, and this mark was then witnessed by a clerk or other official. When the Civil War ended, and the Indian Wars campaigns were in a lull, Carson was appointed brevet brigadier general dated March 13, and appointed commandant of Ft.
Garland, Colorado , in the heart of Ute country. Carson had many Ute friends in the area and assisted in government relations. After being mustered out of the Army, Carson took up ranching, settling at Boggsville in Bent County. Soon after his return, his wife Josefa died from complications after giving birth to their eighth child. Her death was a crushing blow to Carson. He died a month later at age 58 on May 23, , in the presence of Dr.
His last words were "Goodbye, friends. The cause of death was abdominal aortic aneurysm. His resting place is Taos, New Mexico.
Another equestrian statue can be seen in Trinidad, Colorado. A river in Nevada is named for Carson as well as the state's capital, Carson City. Fort Carson, an army training post near Colorado Springs, was named for him during World War II by popular vote of the men training there. Carson has been widely depicted in film and television series.
In the story line, Carson and Godey stop to help a settler in dire straits. In the s and s, Carson came under the scrutiny of contemporary historians, and ideas regarding his historical legacy began to change. Earlier accounts portrayed Carson as an American hero, but in scholarship of this period he became an arch-villain in the military campaigns against the Indians. In , for example, a young professor at Colorado College was successful in demanding that a period photograph of Carson be removed from the ROTC office.
In , a tourist told a journalist at the Carson home in Taos, "I will not go into the home of that racist, genocidal killer. He was a butcher. Over time, historical analysis of Carson shifted again. David Roberts writes, "Carson's trajectory, over three and a half decades, from thoughtless killer of Apaches and Blackfeet to defender and champion of the Utes, marks him out as one of the few frontiersmen whose change of heart toward the Indians, born not of missionary theory but of first hand experience, can serve as an exemplar for the more enlightened policies that sporadically gained the day in the twentieth century.
Harry Carey played Carson in the film Sutter's Gold. Rip Torn played Carson in the miniseries Dream West. Carson was the inspiration for a same named character in the popular Italian comic book series Tex Willer.
Carson's contributions to western history have been reexamined by historians, journalists and Indian activists since the s. In , Carson biographer Harvey L. In respect to his actual exploits and his actual character, however, Carson was not overrated. If history has to single out one person from among the Mountain Men to receive the admiration of later generations, Carson is the best choice.
He had far more of the good qualities and fewer of the bad qualities than anyone else in that varied lot of individuals. Some journalists and authors during the last 25 years presented an alternative view of Kit Carson. For instance, Virginia Hopkins stated in that "Kit Carson was directly or indirectly responsible for the deaths of thousands of Indians".
Sides said that Carson believed the Native Americans needed reservations as a way of physically separating and shielding them from white hostility and white culture. He is said to have viewed the raids on white settlements as driven by desperation, "committed from absolute necessity when in a starving condition. Despite the support of the Taos Pueblo and the residents of Taos Valley the park was not renamed and still bears the Kit Carson moniker. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
