Battle Flat

Battle Flat earned its name from the bloody battle between Yavapai Indians and 5 local miners. All 5 miners survived the attack, one dying 9 days later. Fourteen Indians were killed as well as horses. Located east of Senator Highway the flat is filled with Ponderosa pine surrounded by chaparral. The Tuscumbia Creek west arm flows in the Spring after snow melt into the basin. A trick tank, Trinity mine, and a rough road leading to the Peck Mine are nearby.
There are many versions of this historical battle. Bob Boze Bellís The Battle of Battle Flat, True West Magazine has done the best. Click here to read the story
