Big Hole National Battlefield

5/30/1997 Finally made it to Big Hole National Battlefield and Nez Perce NHS (one of many) on the Nez Perce Historic Trail. [Big Hole is also on the Lewis and Clark NHT.] Saw the visitor center exhibits, then walked the trail to the site where the first battle between the U.S. and Nez Perce took place. Saw the site of the Indian camp and where the soldiers were besieged.
