Excerpt from The Brownsville Texas Affair: Presentation of Loving Cup to Hon. Joseph Benson Foraker, United States Senator in Appreciation of His Service on Behalf of the Members of Companies A, B and C, 25th Infantry, by a Committee of Colored Citizens; The Ceremony and Addresses, March 6th, 1909
One particular case found by Captain Macklin had in its pile seven shells and six clips, and the arrangement was so formal that it caused Major Penrose and all of his officers to reverse their belief in the guilt of the soldiers. It might, as a freak of nature, have been possible for one pile of shells, ejected as they are from the gun, to have so fallen, but for three or more heaps to be so found indicated beyond the shadow of a reasonable doubt that they had so been placed for a purpose. These facts were developed and emphasized by Senator Foraker during the investigation.
Another very significant fact, developed later, showed that the bullets extracted from the houses did not fit the shells. The bullets were from the Union Metallic Company, while the shells were from the Frankfort Arsenal.
