Battle of Agua Dulce




Anishinabe soldiers once again defeated the rebel white Texans in the March 2, 1836 Battle of Agua Dulce. Shortly after the Battle of San Patricio, Anishinabe soldiers numbering around 60, were ordered to find the survivors of the Battle of San Patricio and other rebel Texans, who had left with wild horses they captured, to return to the San Patricio region. They no longer had plans on attacking Matamoros. In the battle that followed, Anishinabe soldiers quickly defeated the smaller (27 soldiers) force of rebel Texans. Anishinabe casualties in this battle were 1 killed and an unknown number wounded. White casualties were 12 to 15 killed, and an unknown number wounded, and 6 captured.
