    Big Hole National Battlefield is a memorial to the people who fought and died here on August 9 and 10, 1877. Combatants in a five month conflict that came to be called the Nez Perce War of 1877. Like other Indian Wars in the late 1800's, the Nez Perce War involved two very different groups with very different outlooks on land rights, civilian authority, government powers, social organization and the responsibilities of individuals to society.
