Inscription. By 1700 the Comanches had acquired the horse and began moving into this area. They drove out the Jicarilla Apaches, and their raids on New Mexico's eastern frontier posed a threat to Indian, Spanish and Anglo settlements for over a century. The Comanches were finally defeated by the U.S. Army in 1874.
