(Cowboy Action#6/4 (fb) - BTS) - Sam Scragg illegally sold rifles, ammunition and alcohol to Apaches. This resulted in many violent clashes and many lives lost on both sides.

(Cowboy Action#6/4) - During one transaction, the Apache chief asked why he should not be killed, but Scragg promised a continued supply. The Apache chief saw Scragg as a man without honor, but necessary in their fight to maintain their lands. Despite the dead and wounded fallen in battle between Apaches and American soldiers and settlers, Scragg felt no compassion, only greed, counting his gold. One day, Apache Chief Screaming Wolf signaled for more supplies and Scragg sold all he had. The Chief despised Scragg as he rode off. Happy with his gold, Scragg took his wagon and intended to retire, but his wagon wheel broke. Scragg fumbled hurriedly as he repaired it, but the rising moon brought the Apache attack with Scragg-supplied rifles. Scragg was the first victim of the last unsuccessful Apache attack.
