  Topic Description
Posted by: mrhistory2 has anyone ever heard of this fight in on Jan. 29,1863 in Idaho between US soldiers led by George Edward Conner and Shoshone Indians led by Bear Hunter? there had been frequet raiding by Indians and Conner's California volunteers attacked the camp and killed 246 Shoshone and captured 164 at a cost of 67 casulaties.I am not suggesting a book,just asking if anyone else has ever heard of this obscure event. BTW a excellent book on the subject is the Shoshoni frontier and the Bear River massacre.
