Battle of Concepcion
This battle is obviously another indication that something was wrong then. Again it had to deal with new weapons the whites recently invented. On October 28, 1835, a force of 90 rebel white Texans battled a force of 275 Anishinabe soldiers and suffered only 1 casualty, while the Anishinabe soldiers suffered anywhere from 14 to 76 killed in the Battle of Concepcion. Supposedly on October 13, 1835, Steven F. Austen led the 90 white soldiers to Bexar (San Antonio) where the remaining Mexican soldiers in Texas were stationed. The white soldiers were eventually discovered by Anishinabe scouts and a force of 275 Anishinabe soldiers marched to where the white soldiers were camped and attacked them. The battle lasted only 30 minutes before Anishinabe commanders ordered their soldiers to end their attack against the white soldiers concealed in a horseshoe shaped gully for protection. San Antonio was brought under white control after this battle.
