From the book - authors named this spring based on Manly description:
" 12-14 miles back up Last Chance Canyon [from Desert Springs] you find a spring that fits Manly's decription. We call it 'Forlorn Hope Spring' where Manly and Rogers caught up wih the Asa Haynes contingent. It is located in a small side canyon that heads into the main ridge. An old stone house stands at the head of the canyon. Below the springs is a narrow spot, but today it is not as narrow as Manly desribed. Large blocks of the soft white rock are strewn below the narrow portion. It is easy to visualize them in their orignial positions thus narrowing the gap to more nearly the size Manly describes.
