Charles Erskine Wood was a United States military Captain and lawyer who supported Chief Joseph's plea for peace. Wood first encountered Joseph at a prisoner camp, where Joseph permitted the escape of Chief White Bird.

Wood opposed this decision, but Howard said this was up to the secretary of war and president.
