NEZ PERCE NATIONAL HISTORIC TRAIL PASSPORT CANCELLATION STAMPS

Here is a list with illustrations of the National Parks Passport Cancellation Stamps that I collected along the Nez Perce National Historic Trail, also known as the Nez Perce (Nee-Me-Poo) National Historic Trail. They are listed by the location of the passport stamping stations in travel order along the 1877 Nez Perce flight route from Oregon, through Idaho and Wyoming, to Montana.

In 1863 most of the Nez Perce Tribe were essentially forced by a revised treaty to leave their homelands in the Wallowa region of Oregon to a reservation at Lapwai, Idaho. Some of the non-treaty Nez Perce continued to reside in their ancestral homelands. In 1877 the U. S. Army oredered them to leave and move to the Lapawai reservation. They refused and began a flight of over 1,170 miles from the Wallowa region through Idaho, Wyoming, and Montana, pursued by the U. S. Army. Their trek ended when they were trapped by the U. S. Army near the Bear Paw Mountains of Montana and forced to surrender.

The national parks sites and other federal/national locations are shown in green.
