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.
The Seventh Cavalry would by order of Colonel Myles (sic), charge the village .... The battalion move forward at the trot, then the gallop and the charge. — Capt. Myles Moylan, U.S. Army

From the south came a noise — rumbling like stampeding buffaloes. Hundreds of soldiers charging ... two wide, circling wings. They were surrounding our camp. — himi・n maqsmáqs (Yellow Wolf)
