Simeon Seaberry Bond began his duty in the Army as a scout and tracker. Ever since he was twelve he was fighting in the Kansas Missouri Border War because they lived along the border. You probably herd the term bleeding Kansas. During the Battle of Island Mound he took out over thirty soldiers even though he was only thirteen. He saved the lives of dozens of his cousins by moving them to safety during the fighting.
