Part Sixth: The Fight at the K. C. and the Murder of Champion and Ray

Solon seeks to escape from the Invaders, but can find no way to do so. A covered wagon with unknown occupants outside the KC ranch cabin as well as harsh daylight prevent the Invaders' plan to dynamite the cabin. Instead the Invaders decide to attack. Martin recounts the events of attack on Nate Champion and others in the cabin including Nick Ray and trappers  Ben Jones and William Walker and the attempted killing of Jack Flagg and his stepson. Martin quotes from Chicago Herald reporter Sam T. Clover's depiction of Champion's death and Mercer's account of the contents of Champion's diary.
