September 12, 1878 Battle of Jackson Hole
Historians claim that the battle of jackson hole was a part of the 1878 Bannock-Paiute War but it was just an extension of the 1877 Anishinabe exodus. About a week after the Americans had defeated the Anishinabe soldiers in northwestern Wyoming and southwestern Montana, just east of Yellowstone National Park, they focused their attention on an Anishinabe camp in what is now Jackson Hole National Park. A force of over 30 American soldiers and their Indian allies, attacked an Anishinabe camp near the Snake River in what is now Jackson Hole National Park. And again the brave Anishinabe soldiers were capable of preventing the white soldiers from completely destroying their camp. Anishinabe casualties were 1 killed and 7 captured. They claim this battle ended the so called 1878 Bannock-Paiute War but there was still a few Anishinabek who refused to give up.
