OWDR Loring Frederick Wadsworth 1871Wickenburg Massacre. Six miles from Wickenburg, AZ, mid-morning: fifteen Yavapai Apache warriors attack a stagecoach. Six men, including the driver, are shot and killed. The only (wounded) female passenger and one male traveler somehow manage to escape. Among the dead is 25-year-old Frederick Wadsworth Loring, a correspondent for Appleton’s Journal (Boston). Beyond the public outrage over the massacre, Loring’s murder will have grave consequences for the Yavapai. Photo: U.S. PD 1871 by unknown – taken about 48 hours before the massacre: Loring in his campaign costume with his mule, Evil Merodach.  {001}
