Bear Paw Battlefield TrailFor the exhausted Nez Perce, this site, known to them as ćáynim?a · lika?spe (Place of Manure Fire), appeared to be a good place to rest before continuing to Canada. Then a large force of U.S. soldiers surprised them from the east. After the Nez Perce blocked the initial attack of September 30th, the battle became a six-day siege, with sniper's bullets and artillery fire.
