Warfare in January


Wolf Mountain y 1877 y Sioux Indian Wars
In a final campaign against the Sioux following Little Big Horn ( June 1876), General Nelson Miles took 500 men and two light guns against Crazy Horse’s village on Wolf Mountain, near the Tongue River, just inside the Montana border. The Sioux were beaten and Crazy Horse surrendered just before a final action at Muddy Creek in May. He was shot ‘‘trying to escape’’ (7 January 1877).
