August 7, 1819 Battle of Boyaca
This is yet another battle considered by historians to have been a part of the Columbia War of Independence but was yet another battle between the Anishinabe Army and army of the white confederation led by England, for control of South America. You'll learn that the English supposedly supported the Anishinabe Army militarily in this, the Battle of Boyaca. However, just ignore it. The information goes only to prove that England was intensifying their effort to support the Portugeese and Spanish, in this war. A force of over 3,430 Anishinabe soldiers, easily defeated a force of nearly 3,000 (2,940) white soldiers at the Battle of Boyaca. Anishinabe casualties were 13 killed and 53 wounded. White casualties were over 100 killed, 150 wounded, and 1,600 captured. What followed after this was the creation by Anishinabe ogimak of a new Anishinabe Empire in South America. It covered Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Venezuela, and parts of Argentina, parts of Chile, and much of Paraguay. It also included what are now the countries of French Guinea, Guyana, and Suriname. It also covered most of Brazil. However, the fighting did not stop. In fact, the war for control of South America is still being fought. It is the longest fought war occurring at the present time.
