September 21: Death of Chief Joseph, 1904

"I want to have time to look for my children, and see how many of them I can find. Maybe I shall find them among the dead. Hear me, my chiefs! I am tired; my heart is sick and sad. From where the sun now stands, I will fight no more forever." -- Chief Joseph, at surrender, 1877.
