    "One of the best sources on the Federal cavalry campaigns against the Indians in the 1870s" (Basic Texas Books). Michael Tate describes Carter's account in The Indians of Texas: An Annotated Research Bibliography: "Perhaps the best first-hand description of Texas military life and campaigns against Comanches and Kiowas during the turbulent 1870s. As a captain in Ranald Mackenzie's Fourth Cavalry, Carter participated in some of the most important events, and he describes these in great detail."
