    This map is the story of the last great Indian battle as Chief Joseph and his men battle the US forces as they retreat toward Canada. It was over a thousand mile journey and thirteen battles before the Chief Joseph issued his famous surrender of "where the Sun now stands, I will fight no more forever". The Nez Perce had been known since there interaction with the Lewis & Clark expedition, and covered lands throughout what is present day Washington, Oregon and Idaho. This map shows that territory and more as it marks the retreat. A map that depicts the definitive end of the Indian age as it was known.
