In dictating his memoirs, Carson, who was illiterate, left out more than he told. He offered not a word about his two Indian wives: Waa-Nibe, also known as Singing Grass, an Arapaho woman who died around 1839, after the birth of their second daughter; and Making Out Road, a Cheyenne girl, who decided he didn’t suit her. Nor did he mention the three children he’d already had with Josefa (they would eventually have five more). Still, his tale must have taken a while to tell. When he was finished, he gave the manuscript to a Taos businessman and ersatz literary agent named Jesse B. Turley. Turley wanted to find someone to write a biography of Carson, based on the memoirs. He thought about tackling it himself, but he soon thought better of it, and instead offered the job to Washington Irving, who declined. Finally, Turley signed an agreement with DeWitt Clinton Peters, a U.S. Army surgeon who knew Carson well. Carson had “dictated the facts”; it remained only for Peters to write the book. Peters, Turley, and Carson would divide the profits. In 1858, a New York publisher brought out Peters’s “The Life and Adventures of Kit Carson . . . from Facts Narrated by Himself.” Peters boasted that he had written “a book of solid truth.”

"American history continues Gold Mine Spills necessity elements contaminated, Navajos can’t contract out a parcel of NAPI lot(s) to seasonal farming, raise pigs haha for who?, micro-sanctions to retaliate if outsiders does get what they want (see Macdonald’s case), Land fractionated!, weather war,"In April, 1863, Brigadier General Henry H. Carleton ordered Colonel Kit Carson to round up the Navajo Indian Tribe and intern them at a reservation in the Bosque Redondo.[1] This was Carson’s first major independent command. Since the Navajo would not go willingly, the army’s strategy, developed by Colonel Edward Canby, was to destroy the tribe’s economy by seizing or killing their sheep and horses, and confiscating or destroying their crops. Carleton allocated Carson some 736 men of the First New Mexico Volunteer Regiment, organized into six mounted companies and three of infantry. Carleton ordered Carson to “prosecute a vigorous war upon the men of this tribe until it is considered at these Head Quarters (sic) that they have been effectually punished for their long continued atrocities.”

The group of Navajos who reported for basic training at the San Diego Marine Corps Recruit Depot had never experienced any sort of military discipline, and several found it difficult to cope with their new lifestyle. Although now officially designated the 382nd Platoon, U.S. Marine Corps, at boot camp, the group was referred to as ‘The Navajo School.’
