On August 9th and 10th, 1877, members of the 7th U.S. Infantry led by Lt. Colonel John Gibbon launched a surprise, pre-dawn attack on the Nez Perce as they camped on the banks of the Big Hole River. Men, women, and children scattered from lodges, seeking shelter in the surrounding prairie and dense willows.
