Big Hole National Monument

Located about 70 miles from Melrose, Mt., is the Big Hole National Monument.  This is the location of a battle between the Nez Perce and the U.S. Army.  There is really not much to see here.  Teepees were erected to show there the indians were camped when attacked in the early morning hours, killing mostly women and children.  Chief Joseph surrendered here, but many others of his tribe managed to make it to Canada.  Click here for more photos
