The Battle of Cook’s Mills October 19, 1814


This battle was fought near where present day Welland, Ontario is situated. It was the last battle in the Niagara Falls region, which was the main battleground of the war. A large force of white soldiers had marched from Plattsburg, New York, to reinforce the recently recaptured Fort Erie. In all, they numbered over 7,000. Of that total about 2,000 fought in the battle. Under Brigadier General Daniel Bissell’s command, the 2,000 white soldiers were ordered to the Cooks Mills region to battle a force of Anishinabe soldiers believed to still be in that vicinity. The battle actually started on October 18, 1814, but the fighting was more of a skirmish than an outright major battle. In that battle that was fought on October 19, 1814, the large force of white soldiers battled the Anishinabe soldiers near Cooks Mills. The battle was considered to be indecisive. In the minor battle white casualties were 13 killed and 90 wounded. After the battle, the Anishinabek agreed to lift their siege over the region between Lake Erie and Lake Ontario, or where the Niagara River flows between the two lakes. They still controlled the region north of Lake Ontario.
