Samuel Glass was wounded in the Camas Meadow War. He was transported from the battle grounds in Kilgore, by wagon, to Fort Harkness. (Fort Harkness was the fort in Pleasant Valley where the troops were headquartered and where Sam's grave is situated). Sam's wound was untreatable. It was a gut wound. The soldiers did the most humane thing they could, they gave Sam a gun to shoot himself. Sam was then buried on the hill just south of the fort.
He was a black man.
The grave is on privately owned property and is taken care of by the owners.
