Chief Joseph,  3-3-1840 – 21-9-1904, was the leader of the Wallowa band of Nez Perce during General Oliver  Howard's attempt to forcibly remove his band and the other "non-treaty" Nez Perce to a reservation in Idaho. For his principled resistance to the removal, he became renowned as a humanitarian and peacemaker.  “Hear me, my chiefs! I am tired. My heart is sick and sad. From where the sun now stands, I will fight no more forever". On his surrender to Gen. Howard.
