170 years ago today - Feb 8, 1850 (Friday)

On this and the following day a battle was fought between the "minute men" and about seventy Indian warriors under Big Elk, close to Utah Fort (now Provo), in which several were killed and wounded on both sides. The Indians subsequently retreated to the mountains.

[Brigham Young had ordered the Indians be removed from Utah Valley by force]

[Jenson, Andrew, Church Chronology]
