Thank you very much for posting these newspaper articles! It's important to go back to the "original sources" - at least, as original as we can get to.

That's why I reprinted the Byerts pamphlet some years ago - to make the uncontaminated information readily available.

You're doing good work here!


Good luck to all,

The Old Bookaroo

I ran across this interesting account of Jacob Snively on an expedition up the Gila in 1859. Not the LAD per se, but perhaps some part of the later stories were derived from this expedition.

View attachment Gila Exp Account 1859.pdf

Unfortunately, the paper changed hands and became a political instrument of southern sympathies leading up to the Civil War...no further information about this expedition was published in this particular paper.

Good find, thanks.
