Battle Mountain, east of Porterville, CA, on the north fork of the Tule River, was the site of an 1856 battle between white settlers and Tulareno Indians. The Indians used these rockk barricades to fend off the settlers. Although both sides numbered hundreds, the settlers' superior firepower caused the Indians to retreat into the pine forests on the mountain. This was one of the last Indian-white battles in California.
