John Phillips had come to America from Portugal, and he was working at the U.S. Army’s Fort Phil Kearney as a woodcutter when Native Americans attacked the soldiers guarding the fort, putting the lives of everyone inside the fort at risk. Someone had to ride for help, and John, although not a soldier himself, volunteered, despite the blizzard that had just begun. It was a long, treacherous, bitterly cold ride, but there was too much at stake for John to fail.
