Despite the name, there never was a "battle" in Battle Ground. It's a complicated tale, that started in 1855 when the soldiers of nearby Fort Vancouver were away fighting an uprising of the Yakima Indians, and nervous locals feared a rebellion from another tribe, the Klickitats, The Klickitats were rounded up and confined to the Vancouver barracks, but a few escaped (and were later convinced to come back!). The feared Klickitat uprising never did materialize, but the spirit of panic and fear lead to the expected battle spot to be dubbed "Battle Ground."
