The Battle of Big Sandy Creek May 29-30, 1814
This battle was fought near where present day Sandy Creek, New York is located. When the Anishinabe soldiers captured Fort Oswego they eventually spread out into the region surrounding Fort Oswego to prepare for more military expeditions against the whites. Their goal was to intercept any military and food supplies the whites were sending to that region, on up to the Sackett’s Harbor region, from the larger white cities located along the Atlantic coastline, particularly New York City. On May 28, 1814, a force of 403 white soldiers under the command of Major Daniel Appling, left in 19 boats to attempt to bring military supplies to the Oswego region. Before they reached the Oswego region they were discovered by Anishinabe scouts who immediately alerted their commanders about the fleet of 19 white boats carrying supplies. They planned an ambush and carried it out successfully on May 29-30, 1814. White casualties in the battle were 24 killed and wounded, and 379 captured then probably killed later on or enslaved by the Anishinabek. The Anishinabe soldiers also captured the large quantities of military and food supplies, the 19 boats were carrying.
