When Chief Joseph and his band of Nez Perce said they would not leave, the government came to remove them. A chase ensued and the Nez Perce were nearly to Canada before they surrendered. The tiny band of warriors and their families were wounded, cold and starving when Chief Joseph surrendered. The simple and plaintive surrender speech by Chief Joseph is recognized as one of the most eloquent speeches in American history.
