Aftermath of the Battle
Although the Nez Perce blunted the armies attack here, this proved to be a costly victory. In the country ahead, the Crow people declined to help the Nez Perce and stole their horses. This further slowed the Nez Perce. With Canada so close but more of the military joining the pursuit, the Nez Perce could not afford to lose time.
