Village of Batoche

 

 

battle field with Batoche in centre of photo  -  19 kb

 

This is the field where most of the fighting took place. It was a wheat field about 20 years ago, so most of the bushes are gone. You will appreciate this expansive tourist site more if you are familiar with the details of the battle and then use the information signs as reminders of all that happened.

The information shelter (below) can be seen sligtly to the right of the very centre of the above photo and then up a bit. The dark image almost looks like a small bush. There is a separate road which offers easy access to the village area.

All that is left of the village is the foundations, about 5 interpretive signs,
and this information shelter.
