American fury in the Philippines. XIV / Mateo river

Fielding Lewis Poindexter, of the Second Oregon:

"About dark, before Company D's return, Colonel Summers rode over to
General Wheaton's headquarters. Shortly after reaching there reports,
which afterwards proved to be somewhat exaggerated, came in that two
companies of the Twenty-second Infantry had been literally cut to
pieces, having fallen into an ambush. After a hasty consultation it
was decided to proceed at once to kill or drive into the lake every
native possible to be found in the half-moon-shaped district lying
between the mouth of the Mateo river and the farther end of the lake,
a distance of twelve miles."
