    1872 · The Modoc War

    Age 0

    Hostilities between Modoc Indians and white settlers resulted in the Modoc War during 1872-1873. A Modoc band of nearly 200 people, led by Captain Jack Kintpuash, was fleeing a forced relocation to a reservation occupied by their enemies, the Klamaths. The band had returned to their former land on Lost River, which now had white settlers occupying the area. The conflict erupted on November 29, 1872, when 40 troops were sent to move the Modocs back to the reservation. An argument erupted and shots were fired. Several were killed and the Modocs fled to “The Stronghold,” a large, cavernous lava bed. The holdout went on for months with several clashes. On April 11, 1873, General Edward Richard Sprigg Canby and Reverend Eleazar Thomas were killed by the Modocs during a negotiation. The Modocs lacked resources and supplies and eventually surrendered on July 4. In total, 2 Modocs and 71 enlisted military men lost their lives.

    Name Meaning

    Irish and English: variant of Carrell .

    French: from Old French quar(r)el, carrel ‘bolt (for a crossbow)’, hence a metonymic occupational name for a maker of crossbow bolts or figuratively a nickname for a short, stout man (compare English Carrell ). The word also meant ‘paving slab’, and so it could also have been a metonymic occupational name for a street layer.
