Since his small force consisted of 164 lightly armed men, each issued only fifteen rounds ammunition, Steptoe wisely turned back down the trail. The determined Indians fell on the rear of his column, attacking his defending pickets all morning....as the horse soldiers retreated southward, toward Fort Walla Walla.   [In today's U.S. Army, using its military jargon, this would not be described as a retreat but a retrograde movement.]

Darkness found them in a defensive position on the slopes of a very tall, steep pyramid shaped hill, that today bears the name Steptoe Butte.   Lt. Col. Steptoe, not lacking in courage, wanted to fight it out from that position, but wiser heads among his junior officers and NCO's convinced him that discretion is the better part of Valor.   Thus, in darkness they buried their cannon and their dead, and before dawn slipped out and down the trail to Fort Walla Walla, Washington Territory.
