April 17, 1879 Battle of Careless Creek
This battle was fought near where present day Ryegate, Montana is located. It was originally within Turtle Mountain eservation. There were a few Ojibways who continued to live within Turtle Mountain Reservation at that time or in 1879. Americans Soldiers numbering 14 and 6 of their Indian allies, were sent to a location they knew a number of Ojibways were living. It was near Musselshell River which was Turtle Mountain Reservations southern boundary. They were obviously forcing those Ojibways of that location to relocate to either Blackfeet Reservation (Fort Belknap Reservation) or Crow Reservation. They did not want to leave their land. In a battle that followed on Thursday April 17, 1879, Americans Soldiers and their Indian allies, killed at least 8 Ojibways and wounded an unknown number. White casualties were 2 killed and 1 wounded. Afterwards, they forced Ojibways of that location, to relocate.
