December 9, 1824 Battle of Ayacucho
Considered by historians to have been a battle of the Peruvian War of Independence, the Battle of Ayacucho was just another battle between the Anishinabe Army and the army of the white confederation led by England, for control of South America. With their victory over the white confederation at this 1824 battle, the Anishinabe people had toppled white rule in South America. Anishinabe soldiers numbered 8,500 soldiers in this battle, while the white soldiers numbered nearly 10,000. It was fought at Pampa de La Quinua. At the time the whites still controlled much of southern Peru. Anishinabe casualties were 979 killed and wounded. White casualties were over 2,100 killed and wounded, and 3,500 captured then probably executed. In the matter of less than two decades, Anishinabe soldiers and their Indian and black allies, invading from the Caribbean Islands north of South America, had fought a bitter war against the white invaders and brought South America back under Indian control. What led to this Anishinabe victory over the white invaders, was the native Indian population of South America, including the Inca who are really an admixture of Anishinabe and native South American Indians, who supported the Anishinabe Army. However, the war was really not over. A period of relative peace followed but by the mid 1830s, the whites had invented the revolver and that set in motion another attempt by the white confederation to regain control of South America. That war is still going on. It is the longest running war occurring at the present time.
