The September 1, 1881 Battle of Fort Apache
Some historians consider this battle to be only a continuation of the Battle of Cibecue Creek, but again the Battle of Fort Apache is reminiscent of the many battles the Anishinabe soldiers fought against the invading whites during the 17th, 18th, and early 19th centuries. Most likely this battle was a part of Anishinabe military plans of preventing white soldiers and their Indian allies, from attempting to stop them from commencing an exodus to the north of Mexico. On September 1, 1881, a force of Anishinabe soldiers commenced to attack Fort Apache and continued their assault for most of that day. By sundown the battle was over. Anishinabe casualties are unknown. American casualties were only 3 wounded. Though historians consider the battle to have been an American victory, if you look over the facts, the battle then appears as being an Anishinabe strategic victory.
