Commemorating the surrender of Chief Joseph and the remnants of his tribe of Nez Perce to General Nelson A. Miles, October 5, 1877.
Here Chiefs Looking Glass, Ollicut, Too-hul-sote and many other warriors were killed
Chief Joseph was a military genius, courageous, and humane.
Presenting his rifle to General Miles, with right hand upraised, he proclaimed:
"From where the sun now stands, I will fight no more forever."
He kept his word.

In graceful remembrance of the officers and enlisted men killed in action in the last decisive armed conflict between the white men and red men in the Northwest.
