For a few days there, during the Nez Perce War of 1877, it looked like George Cowan would die at Yellowstone National Park – and that would be the end of his story. But as fate would have it, he lived and eventually found his way to Spokane. And when he did die, he and his wife, Emma, were laid to rest at Riverside Memorial Park along North Government Way in Spokane.....

The Nez Perce War of 1877 came about when tribal members refused to accept terms of a treaty to remove them from their lands and attempted to flee to Montana and Canada, led by several chiefs, including Chief Joseph, whose life and leadership has much been written about. The Cowans got caught in the middle of it all.....
