The Battle of Cowan’s Ford February 1, 1781
This early 1781 battle was fought in what is now the North Carolina county of Mecklenburg. A force of nearly 6,000 English soldiers under the command of General Charles Cornwallis, set off on January 31, 1781, to find a military force of brave soldiers from the Southern Anishinabe Confederation, who were on the defensive in the North Carolina region. About four miles north of Cowan’s Ford, a force of soldiers from the Southern Anishinabe Confederation, was sent southwards to learn about the large English military force searching for them. Later on that same day, the remaining soldiers from the military force from the Southern Anishinabe Confederation, joined those soldiers who had went southwards towards Cowan’s Ford to, what appears, harass the large English military force. Early the next day (February 1, 1781), the large force of English soldiers commenced to cross the swollen stream but once the large English military force had well advanced to the other side of the high waters of the stream, the concealed soldiers from the Southern Anishinabe Confederation were ordered by their commanders to commence their assault. What followed was nothing major. The conditions were obviously not good for either military force and not many casualties occurred. White casualties were 35 killed and 61 wounded.
