July 21, 1878 Battle of Clearwater River
Historians claim that Battle of Clearwater River, was a part of 1878s Bannock-Paiute War but it was just an extension of an 1877 Anishinabe exodus. Battle of Clearwater River was fought on Sunday July 21, 1878. Battle of Clearwater River was a part of Mullan Road War. Above is a list of Mullan Road War battles. A force of many Ojibway Soldiers were launching raids against whites in western Montana (west of and near Missoula), probably in response to hostile whites raiding them, while they were going on their westward exodus. A force of white soldiers was instructed to leave Fort Missoula (present day Missoula, Montana) to find Anishinabe Soldiers who were launching raids near Missoula. They followed them to Idaho's border with Montana and fought a minor battle in Idaho. Anishinabe casualties were 6 killed and 3 wounded. White casualties were 0. These Anishinabek eventually reached Washington and settled down north of Yakima Reservation. Their leader was chie Moses. Most Montana Ojibways who fled west, fled to Washington. Chief Moses was instrumental in having Columbia Reservation set aside for Montana Ojibways. It was adjacent to Colville Reservation on it's west. It was eradicated by corrup American leadership that didn't want Ojibway People dominating that Reservation in Colville-Spokane Reservation.
