The July 28, 1864 Battle of Killdeer Mountain

During summer of 1864, American Soldiers resumed their military campaign against Ojibway People in western North Dakota, Montana and Wyoming. According to historians, American goals were defeating Anishinabe Soldiers and establishing forts in their territory. Battle of Killdeer Mountain was a part of Mullan Road War. A list of Mullan Road War battles is below. Major General John Pope ordered a force of over 2,500 American Soldiers to force their way to western North Dakota (Dunn County, North Dakota) to war upon Anishinabe People, and another large force of American Soldiers under command of another officer, to commence establishing forts in North Dakota and South Dakota. One was Fort Rice which is a little south of present day Bismarck, North Dakota. On July 28, 1864, Brigadier General Alfred Sully made an approach near an Anishinabe fortified civilized village located near Little Missouri River, near or on present day Fort Berthold Reservation.

He reported their village had up to 6,000 soldiers. That indicates a large Anishinabe poulation in western North Dakota. Before American Soldiers commenced to attack their village, they attempted to negotiate with Anishinabe ogimak first. However, an event occurred before this battle which actually led to this indecisive battle. A white invader who was a topographical engineer was killed by 3 Anishinabe Soldiers. American Soldiers captured those 3 Anishinabe Soldiers who killed that white man who was tresspassing on Anishinabe land and executed them, then beheaded them and had their heads placed on poles to further entice already enraged Anishinabek into fighting them. Negotiations, as all would expect, ended in failure, which led Brigadier General Sully to order his 2,500 soldiers to attack that Ojibway stronghold.

According to historians, American Soldiers eventually forced Anishinabe Soldiers to abandon their positions and flee for safety, which broke Anishinabe resistance. However, that is not true. White invaders attacked a civilized Anishinabe city and were repelled. Anishinabe Soldiers were brave enough to leave safety of their fortified city and battle American Soldiers. Once they left their fortified city, they gave battle and drove those American Soldiers, who knew they were outnumbered, away from their city. American casualties in this battle were 15 killed and wounded. Anishinabe casualties were 31 killed and wounded. Americans had forced their way to Anishinabe controlled western North Dakota, but this war was not over. They soon established forts to station their soldiers. Their goal was to protect white invaders who were using Missouri River to invade eastern Montana.
