1923 · The Last Indian War

Age 1

The Posey War was to be considered the final Indian War in American history. It was a minor conflict, but it involved a mass exodus of Ute and Paiute from their land around current day Bluff, Utah. The natives were led by a chief named Posey, hence the name, who took his people into the mountains to try and escape his pursuers. The war ended after a skirmish at Comb Ridge. Posey was badly wounded, and his band was taken to a prisoner-of-war camp in Blanding. When Posey's death was confirmed by the authorities, the prisoners were released and given land allotments to farm and raise livestock.

Name Meaning

1 English: from a pet form of David .2 English: from the Middle English personal name Day(e) or Dey(e), Old English Dæi, apparently from Old English dæg ‘day’, perhaps a short form of Old English personal names such as Dægberht and Dægmund. Reaney, however, points to the Middle English word day(e), dey(e) ‘dairy maid’, ‘(female) servant’ (from Old English dæge, cognate with Old Norse deigja ‘female servant’, ultimately from a root meaning ‘to knead’, and related to the word for dough), which he says came to be used for a servant of either sex.3 Irish: Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó Deaghaidh ( see O’Dea ).
