The Two Medicine Fight Site located roughly 25 miles south east of Browning is the location of the only violent encounter of the Lewis and Clark Expedition which took place on July 27, 1806. Accounts of the conflict have varied over the years, but one of the main issues was that the Corps of Discovery were making peace with other American Indian tribes and providing them with guns which threatened the traditional Blackfeet domination of the region.
