The Battle of Cooch’s Bridge September 3, 1777
After the battle at Staten Island, a rather large English military force of 1,170 soldiers under the command of William Howe, landed their ships just off the Maryland coast near the Head of Elk. What the English and German military force was going to do was march to the north to attempt to reach Philadelphia. At the small town of Iron Hill which was a few miles from Newport, Delaware, a small force of Anishinabe soldiers was ordered to attempt to stop the advance of the invading white military force and a battle followed. With their superior weapons and numbers, the white military force formed into a line then charged the Anishinabe soldiers, which resulted in the brave Anishinabe soldiers retreating from their enemies attack. They took to the woods where more fighting occurred. Then they took to nearby Cooch’s Bridge where they finally lost the battle. White casualties at the battle at Cooch’s Bridge was 70 killed and wounded. The whites from both the English colonies in North America and Europe, used the Delaware Bay to send their soldiers, weapons, and food supplies to the city of Philadelphia.
