The December 28, 1872 Battle of Salt River Canyon
Continuing on with their Tonto Basin Campaign of stopping Anishinabe diaporas to the north of Mexico, the United States ordered a force of their soldiers numbering 130 and 30 of their Indian allies, under the command of Lieutenant General George Crook, to search for a force of some 110 Anishinabe soldiers hiding out in Skeleton Cave in the Salt River Canyon. The Americans surprised the Anishinabe soldiers and easily defeated them using their superior weapons. At least 75 of the Anishinabe soldiers hiding out in the cave were killed. No American casualties occurred.
