Old Frontiers by John P Brown ...talks mainly about his brother Dragging Canoe..said Badger & Little Owl were his brothers....apparently, DC was a stronger more feared chief..says the Badger & Little Owl were his ambassadors...sent to carry messages to the British at Detroit, ...also carried messages to the Shawnee & Creek...you might read about Gen. Arthur St Clair & the surprise attack he experienced from Badger & 30 Chickamaugas(Cherokee from the Chickamauga, Tennessee area)..gives a reference of St Clair's official report in American State Papers, Indian Affairs, Volume 1, 137...I think that refers to pg 137...and Roosevelt'sWinning of the West Volume 4 pgs 51-72, and American State Papers pg 327, 329, 438....didn't give a volume # in last reference....They defeated St Clair...& Badger said it is nothing to meet the americans in regimentals...apparently thought it easy to beat them....also in Old Frontiers..it relates a story about Badger preparing for the Shawnee ..wanting to smoke a certain peace pipe with them..apparently a special one...the peace pipe had been broken by, I think Kingfisher, .....that's why Badger was mad & had another one made like it......So Badger had another one made & smoked it with the Shawnee....He was furious over it......I know it's not much...but all it says...This is footnoted by American State Papers, Indian Affairs, Volume 1 pg 430.
