Battle At Bear Paw

Warrior Series

Colonel Nelson A. Miles left Fort Keogh on September 18 in pursuit of Chief Joseph with a force of 520 soldiers, civilian employees, and scouts, including about 30 Indian scouts, mostly Cheyenne but with a few Lakota (Teton Sioux). Some of the Indian scouts had fought against Custer in the Battle of the Little Big Horn only 15 months earlier, but had subsequently surrendered to Miles.
