Roaring Eagle: tipiyeléhne?iléseniń (George Comedown)Striking on the run, the U.S. Army planned to surprise and overwhelm the Nez Perce camp. Along this ridge Nez Perce warriors fought back fiercely and stopped the cavalry charge. The surprise attack was blunted, but the Nez Perce were pinned down, and the battle became a siege. For the first time in their journey, the Nez Perce were unable to escape.
