Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana
July 24-25, 1863 Battle of Big Mound
Obviously just an extension of 1862s Minnesota Indian War, Battle of Big Mound was fought in what is now Kidder County, North Dakota which was a location of a large fortified Anishinabe fortified village, just east of Missouri River. Battle of Big Mound was actually a part of Mullan Road War. A list of Mullan Road War battles is above. White historians are liars of course. It was Ojibway Soldiers who fought that so called Great Sioux Uprising of 1862. I don't care if Dakota people accept their history whites have written for them. However, Dakota people are going to have to deal with Anishinabe people writing their own history. Read Seven Fires Prophecy! From Fort Ridgely, a force of 3,000 American Soldiers forced their way to Anishinabe land in what is now North Dakota, to battle Anishinabe Soldiers and attempt to halt a westward exodus of Anishinabe people from Minnesota. Their presence was learned of by Anishinabe scouts, and a large force of Anishinabe Soldiers was assembled to approach a large force of American Soldiers invading their lands with intentions of attacking them.
On July 24-25, 1863 Anishinabe Soldiers surrounded a camp of American Soldiers and dug in (built trenches to defend themselves from superior weapons their white enemy had) then commenced to attack them. Anishinabe military commanders had goals of stopping that large force of white soldiers from establishing a permanent presence in central and western North Dakota. Unable to dominate American Soldiers who had howitzers, machine guns, and revolvers, Anishinabe ogimak ordered their brave soldiers to end their assault, then to retreat. Some American Soldiers followed them but returned to their camp. Historians claim it was an American victory but Ojibway Soldiers still prevented whites from accomplishing their goals which were to subdue Anishinabe People and protect invading whites using Missouri River to invade Montana. Few casualties occurred in that battle, as a result of poor weapons Anishinabe Army had, and because of trenches used by Anishinabe Soldiers. American casualties were 20 killed and wounded. Anishinabe casualties were 10 killed and wounded. Afterwards, more Anishinabek fled further west to central and western North Dakota, and then to Montana.
