Leander Brown

Private Leander Brown was killed in Indian Territory (modern day Oklahoma) after being struck in the chest with a pick ax. He had arrest a man for illegally being on Indian land and for cutting hay without a permit.

Because of their location, the two made camp nearby with plans to return to the jail in the morning. At some point during the night the suspect slipped his shackles and struck Private Brown in the chest with a pick ax.
