Battle of Canyon Creek
September 13, 1877
The Nez Perce were familiar with this traditional route up to the Buffalo plains. Once again during their three-month-long flight they are able to use knowledge of the terrain and accurate marksmanship to hamper the army’s pursuit. Yet the Nez Perce remained on the run.
