September 14, 1763 Battle of Devils Hole

This 1763 battle was fought on Wednesday September 14, 1763. It was fought near Niagara Falls which was within Ojibway Territory. Battle of Devils Hole was a part of Pontiac's War. A list of Battles of Pontiac's War is below. Several hundred Ojibway Soldiers including Assinica or Seneca Ojibway Soldiers, ambushed a contingent of English Soldiers and teamsters, who were attempting to bring supplies to Fort Niagara from Fort Schlosser. Both forts were very close to Niagara Falls. In both battles, 102 English Soldiers and teamsters were killed by victorious Ojibway Soldiers. Ojibway Soldiers followed a wagon train led by 24 English Soldiers or teamsters, then attacked it. They killed 21 of those 24 English Soldiers or teamsters. They were armed. However, 3 white soldiers or teamsters, reached Fort Schlosser. Another force of English Soldiers heard about that nearby battle and were sent to where that battle scene was, to reinforce those English Soldiers or teamsters. Ojibway scouts were watching those 89 English Soldiers making their way to where that earlier battle was fought. Several hundred Ojibwa Soldiers prepared to battle them about a mile or so from where that earlier battle was fought. Ojibway Soldiers quickly defeated those English Soldiers and some accounts claim all 89 were killed. However, it was reported that 8 English Soldiers survived. In all, 102 English Soldiers and teamsters were killed and 9 wounded. It is not known how many Ojibway Soldiers were killed and wounded. One Ojibway account told of only one Ojibwa Soldier wounded during those battles. Ojibway Soldiers continued to hold Niagara Falls region under their control, after Pontiac's War.
