January 8, 1877 Battle of Wolf Mountain
This battle took place at what is now Northern Cheyenne Reservation of Montana. Anishinabe Soldiers numbered around 500 as did that of American Soldiers. Ojibway Soldiers didnít let an Americans perimeter deter them from attempting to take their machine guns and howitzers out of battle, but American Soldiers defended their superior weapons successfully. American Soldiers had planned an attack on an Anishinabe settlement near present day Birney, Montana but their plans were discovered before they could attack that fortified Anishinabe settlement. Historians claim ogima Crazy Horse led Anishinabe Soldiers in this battle which may or may not, be correct. Anyway, Anishinabe Soldiers responded quickly after learning that American Soldiers were preparing to assault their village and went out to fight them. American casualties were 5 killed and 8 wounded in this battle. Casualties of their Dakota (Crow) and Shoshone allies were probably near that of their white invaders. Anishinabe casualties were 3 killed and an unknown number wounded. They were much higher as a result of superior weapons of their white enemies. Anishinabe Soldiers prevented American Soldiers and their Indian allies, from destroying their village. It was a strategic Anishinabe victory. Battle of Wolf Mountain was fought on Monday January 8, 1877. Since it was fought very near Crow Reservation, it's an indication it was fought somewhere else. Probably in north central Montana.
