Looking Glass

During General O. O. Howard's 1877 Nez Perce campaign, Looking Glass and his band were camped up Clear Creek near here.  Looking Glass told army authorities: "Leave us alone.  We are living here peacefully and want no trouble."  But after a military attack, July 1, that destroyed his village, ruined his gardens and captured 750 Nez Perce horses, Looking Glass and his band joined other Nez Perce refugees and soon headed for Montana's buffalo plains.  Howard spent three more months pursuing Joseph, White Bird, Looking Glass, and their warriors after that fiasco. ~ text of marker #347
