The Battle of Chippawa July 5, 1814
This battle was fought near where present day Chippawa, Ontario is located. A force of over 5,600 white soldiers under the command of Major General Phineas Riall, were instructed to attempt to force their way into the Fort Erie region to attempt to recapture the fort which had recently fallen to the Anishinabek. The Anishinabek had no use for the fort, excepting collecting the forts stores of weapons, ammunition, and food. They may have either totally destroyed the fort or only partially destroyed the fort, after capturing it. Early on July 5, 1814, the Anishinabe soldiers were ordered by their military commanders to commence to battle the large force of white soldiers who were obviously trying to recapture Fort Erie, and bring that entire region under white control. As the battle progressed, the white soldiers under Riallís command formed lines to advance upon the Anishinabe soldiers, but their ancient tactic proved to be a failure. Anishinabe commanders knew that even when their brave soldiers used their primitive weapons such as lances (spears), bows and arrows, and thus, they could defeat the whites. There was obviously a large enough Anishinabe military force there that day, because the Anishinabe soldiers eventually started dominating the larger white military force. In fact, Major General Riall ordered his soldiers to retreat from the battle they were losing. White casualties in the major battle were 169 killed, 605 wounded, and 46 captured by the prophesy weary Anishinabek, then probably killed later on or enslaved.
