Big Hole National Battlefield preserves a Nez Perce War battlefield located in Montana, United States. The Nez Perce fought a delaying action against the 7th Infantry Regiment (United States) here on August 9 and 10, 1877, during their failed attempt to escape to Canada. This action, the Battle of the Big Hole, was the largest battle fought between the Nez Perce and U.S. Government forces in the five-month conflict known as the Nez Perce War. In 1992 the park was made a part of Nez Perce National Historical Park, which consists of 38 locations in five states, following the flight of the Nez Perce tribe from the U.S. Cavalry, the route of which was designated Nez Perce National Historic Trail in 1986.To visit Big Hole National Battlefield on your holiday in Wisdom, and find out what else Wisdom has to offer, use our Wisdom.

Big Hole National Battlefield reviews
Great location to learn western history great trail system and fishing access. Great place to stretch out your l re ga while driving through the area more »
First of all, driving 43 east to west felt like moving through "The river runs through it". I have mixed impression of the exhibit and the park, but there is one item that really got our attention... more »
I had no idea what had happened here. Very emotional place. Excellent visitor center. The volunteer on site was a pleasure to talk to. Everyone should stop here to understand how dark are history as a country was a times
The museum was very well done. If you take the little trail down to the camp, I'd recommend some mosquito repellent. I would recommend taking the walk, though. The interpretation is interesting and impactful.
