Battle of Fish Creek - Metis Defeat Federal Canadian Forces April 24, 1885
125 years ago this weekend the bloody battle at Fish Creek in Saskatchewan occurred in what was at the time, the North West Territories. While representing a Metis victory over the forces of the Government of Canada, it was merely the prelude to the Battle of Batoche a few weeks later which saw the end of the Northwest Rebellion.
In 1885, the Provisional Government of Saskatchewan was involved in an armed conflit with the Dominion of Canada.
