Big Hole National Battlefield


Big Hold National Battlefield MT

Big Hole National Battlefield is a memorial to the people who fought and died here on August 9 and 10, 1877. About 750 non-treaty Nez Perce were fleeing from US Army troops charged with enforcing the US government's demands that all Nez Perce move to a reservation a fraction the size of their traditional homeland. In doing so, the Army was enforcing a national policy of placing all American Indians on reservations to make way for States.

Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area


Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area MT

Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area was established by an act of Congress on October 15, 1966, following the construction of the Yellowtail Dam by the Bureau of Reclamation. This dam, named after the famous Crow chairman Robert Yellowtail, harnessed the waters of the Bighorn River and turned this variable stream into a magnificent lake. Bighorn Lake extends approximately 60 miles through Wyoming and Montana, 55 miles of which are held within spectacular Bighorn Canyon.

Bozeman, MT


Bozeman MT

In 1864, John Bozeman led a wagon train over Bozeman Pass into the Gallatin Valley, where his friends W. J. Beall and D. E. Rouse staked out the town site for the city of Bozeman. Never a boomtown, Bozeman has had a slow, steady growth, beginning the day its first log cabin was erected in 1864. Many early settlers were ricochets from the gold fields of Bannack, Butte and Helena. These ex-miners would learn the more stable lifestyle of merchants and farmers. Today, Bozeman is one of Montana's major tourism and agriculture centers.
