The Battle of Caulk’s Field August 31, 1814
This battle was fought near where Fairlee, Maryland is situated. The obvious goal of the Anishinabe Army still in the Washington D.C. and Baltimore region, was to prevent white soldiers from reinforcing the white soldiers between those two cities. Before the battle commenced on August 31, 1814, as was their custom when at war against the whites, Anishinabe soldiers plundered the region around where present day Fairlee, Maryland is located. In the battle that was fought on August 31, 1814, the white soldiers defeated the small Anishinabe military force. White casualties in the battle were 32 killed and wounded.
