In these caves and crevasses, which the army called "The Stronghold," the 160-odd Indians, led by Captain Jack, fought five battles and several skirmishes aginst the whites, inclicting more casualties on their enemies than their own total strength.Toward the end of the war, when these Indians felt the ignominy of defeat and mistrusted their shaman’s medicine, they separated into their original bands and moved into the hills. Within a few days all but two or three Modocs were in the army’s hands. But the victory was less the army’s doing than the failure of the Modoc spiritual leader."
