In Nevada, Paiute Indians defeated at the Second Battle of Pyramid Lake

-
In Nevada, following the Paiute Indian defeat of a poorly equipped militia several weeks earlier, Nevada volunteers units had been formed and reinforced with U.S. regular infantry. In the area of the first battle, these forces, numbering around 750 men, engaged perhaps 300 Paiutes in a running battle over several days.  This so-called Second Battle of Pyramid Lake led to the driving off of the tribesmen and the eventual end of the Paiute War.  (By John Osborne)
