September 30, 1879 Battle of Milk Creek
Historians claim that this battle was a part of the so called 1879 Ute War which is also known as the 1879 White River War but it was just an extention of the Northern Cheyenne Exodus. After a force of Anishinabe soldiers forced their way into northwestern Kansas the previous year and killed 40 or more white settlers, they continued going towards the west into northwestern Colorado. Anyway, the Anishinabek who forced their way into eastern Colorado eventually reached the Rocky Mountains. Their white enemies were still after them and tried to negotiate with them. It culminated on September 30, 1879 in the Battle of Milk Creek. The battle was won by the Anishinabe soldiers. White casualties were 14 killed and over 40 wounded. Anishinabe casualties were fewer.
