The Battle of Big Hole  A History of General Gibbon s Engagement with Nez Perc  s Indians in the Big Hole Valley  Montana  August 9th  1877  Annotated

The Battle of the Big Hole was fought in west-central Montana on August 9–10, 1877, between the U.S. Army and the Nez Perce tribe led by legendary Chief Joseph. Temporarily capturing the village, the army was pushed back during a warrior counterattack, while the Native American non-combatants fled. Led by Civil War veteran, Colonel John Gibbon (a major figure at Gettysburg), the army suffered heavy casualties, as did the Nez Perce. The tribe would escape to make its way toward Canada but was pursued by the military until they surrendered. This is the story of the battle as it was fought by the troopers. At the time this book was written in 1892, John Gibbon and Chief Joseph had become friends and met at the old battlefield. Every memoir of the American West provides us with another view of the period that changed the country forever. For the first time, this long out-of-print volume is available as an affordable, well-formatted book for e-readers and smartphones. sure to LOOK INSIDE by clicking the cover above or download a sample.
