Canyon Creek Battlefield Monument - Laurel

The Friends of Canyon Creek are currently working on a walk through display at the monument location to tell the history of the Canyon Creek Battle between the Nez Perce led by Chief Joseph and the US Calvary led by Colonel Samuel Sturgis. This battle took place on September 13,1877. 125 warriors held off the cavalry enabling the rest of the band of 800 Nez Perce to continue their flight from Oregon to asylum in Canada.
