S, G. Fisher

The leader of these scouts, or the "chief scout," as he was called, deserves special notice. He was a tall, pale man, of fair proportions, being slightly deaf. A stranger would see little that was remarkable in him. Yet of all the scouts in our Indian campaign, none equalled this chief, Fisher. Night and day, with guides and without, with force and without, Fisher fearlessly hung upon the skirts of the enemy. The accuracy, carefulness, and fullness of his reports, to one attempting to chase Indians across a vast wilderness, were a delight.
