The Battle of Beaver Dams June 24, 1813
This battle was fought near where present day Thorold, Ontario is located. A white military force of around 1,000 soldiers was ordered to attack a force of Anishinabe soldiers who were located not too far from the Fort George region, at a location referred to as Beaver Dams. On June 24, 1813, the force of white soldiers had already left to carry out their orders (that included bringing with them a wagon train of supplies), but from around them were scores of brave Anishinabe soldiers who knew from their scouts, about their movements towards their nearby camp. In the battle that followed, the white soldiers were capable of driving off the Anishinabe soldiers while the battle raged on in the woods, then they departed the woods for a nearby open field where they could use their cannons and howitzers on the large Anishinabe military force. However, it was a strategic mistake because the Anishinabe soldiers regrouped then launched a counterattack on the white soldiers who now were in that open field. Within a few minutes the commanders of the white military force realized their blunder then surrendered to the Anishinabek. White casualties in the battle were 130 killed and wounded. After the commanders of the large white military force had surrendered to the Anishinabek, nearly 500 white soldiers were captured then were probably killed later on or enslaved by the Anishinabek. The Anishinabek also captured the wagon train of supplies, which obviously included large stores of weapons and ammunition.
