Not knowledgeable enough on the topic to say for certain, but what I will say is that if I were in his position I'd definitely shoot myself rather than be taken alive. Some of the stories of the tortures the Native Americans inflicted on people are truly horrifying. Honour hasn't got anything to do with it when the alternative to the bullet to the head is a long and violent and painful death. Only a fool would risk that happening when it's obvious all is lost.
