The Comanche are a nation of Native Americans who lived mostly in north Texas, Oklahoma and eastern New Mexico at the time of the arrival of Europeans. Today, the Comanche Nation consists of approximately 14,105 members, about half of whom live in Oklahoma, and the remainder are concentrated in Texas, California, and New Mexico.
Comanche in Southern VictoryEdit
The Comanche were perhaps the only Native American tribe living in the United States who were treated well and allowed to live in peace. The primary reason for this lay in the Comanche's hatred of Texans, whom they frequently raided from New Mexico, much like the Kiowa tribes did in Kansas.
These facts were used as ammunition by Confederate Captain Jethro Weathers against U.S. Colonel George Armstrong Custer, when the two met on the plains and argued about both governments' support of Indians.
