      If I dig far enough...  ;)  From Civil War In The Indian Territory  by Steve Cottrell (pg. 107):
       
      "Finally on June 19 at Doaksville, capital of the Choctaw Nation, the Confederate military forces of that tribe were surrendered by their new principal chief, Peter Pitchlynn.   Four days later, on June 23, near the same place, Gen. Stand Watie at last surrendered his hard-riding Cherokee troopers, together with the Creek and Seminole forces, as well as the Osage Battalion.  The Cherokee general surrendered to Lt. Col. A. C. Matthews who had been sent south with a detachment of U. S. cavalry to seek him out."
